VPGE and the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs (OPA) welcome Stacey Bent, the incoming Vice Provost for Graduate Education and Postdoctoral Affairs.

Stacey is also the Jagdeep and Roshni Singh Professor in the School of Engineering and Professor of Chemical Engineering. Prior to her appointment as VP, Stacey served as Senior Associate Dean for Faculty and Academic Affairs in the School of Engineering and as director of the TomKat Center for Sustainable Energy, the latter for 10 years.

Provost Persis Drell appointed Stacey as VP in May 2019, to succeed Patricia J. Gumport, who announced she was stepping down as VP last November. Gumport is returning to teaching in Stanford’s Graduate School of Education and to continue her research as director of the Stanford Institute for Higher Education Research.

Please join VPGE and OPA in thanking Patti for her many years of service and in welcoming Stacey! 

Meet the Vice Provost here.
