Community and Flexibility

In this episode of Stanford MS&E: Stories & Voices (Spotify), we chat with Jeff Hanson, a graduate of the masters program in MS&E. Jeff shares how and why he became an advocate for building community amongst the Honors Cooperative Program (HCP) students, aided in part by the flexibility offered by varying structure options in the degree program. Jeff discusses the realities of juggling work and study while also raising a family, putting his studies and the range of feedback sources into immediate use in his work, and how the community that he helped bring together benefited so many peers.
