Stanford University Human Resources
Dieter R. Walz
Dieter Walz has always been amazed by the “frontier level” of research at Stanford and has enjoyed the multicultural student body, faculty and staff during his time here. His advice to new hires is to “think big and, if possible, outside the box.”
The tranquil setting of the Inner Quad and also the Sector 6 Picnic Knoll on the south side of the SLAC Two Mile Accelerator.
The planning of SLAC's 40th Anniversary in 2002 for which I was a member of the Organizing Committee, followed by the actual festivities and the reunion of many former colleagues that built and made SLAC what it is.
The visit of French President George Pompidou to SLAC and the visit of President Gorbachev and wife Raisa to the Stanford Campus.
The multicultural experience of not only the student body, but also the faculty and staff at all levels of employment. The frontier level of research in so many disciplines never ceases to amaze me.
Think big and, if possible, outside the box. The sky is the limit. You can do much more than you think you can. And remember: "Die Luft Der Freiheit Weht."
