Condoleezza Rice Appointed Director of Hoover Institution at Stanford University

Condoleezza Rice, who served as secretary of state from 2005 to 2009, has been named the Tad and Dianne Taube Director of the Hoover Institution at Stanford University, effective Sept. 1.

Rice, the Denning Professor in Global Business at the Graduate School of Business and the Thomas and Barbara Stephenson Senior Fellow on public policy at the Hoover Institution, joined Stanford University in 1981, where she served as provost from 1993 to 1999. She has been a Hoover Institution senior fellow since 1991.

“I’m honored to be named as Hoover’s next director,” Rice said in a statement. “Both the Hoover Institution and Stanford University are places that believe in the study and creation of ideas that define a free society. The nurturing of these ideas, the value of free inquiry and the preservation of open dialogue are the backbone of democracy,” she said. “It will be a privilege to lead the institution as it moves into its second century and to work with the outstanding fellows who seek dynamic solutions to the incredible challenges on the horizon.”

Rice also served as President George W. Bush’s national security adviser. The Birmingham, Ala., native earned a bachelor’s degree and a doctorate in political science from the University of Denver.

She also holds a master’s degree from the University of Notre Dame.
