Kenneth M. Cuthbertson Award
The Kenneth M. Cuthbertson Award was established in 1981 to recognize exceptional service to Stanford University. It was established by members of the faculty who wish to remain anonymous. All members of the Stanford community are eligible for the award; the sole criterion is the quality of the contribution that the recipients have made to the University. The award provides a way of honoring members of the staff and faculty for their efforts on behalf of the University.
Ordinarily, one award is made each year. The award was first presented in 1981 to the person for whom it is named. Kenneth M. Cuthbertson was one of the early architects of Stanford's long-term financial planning and fundraising program. His service to Stanford set an enduring standard for those who will come after him. The award is made annually at the University Commencement Ceremony.
