Dedicated staff member, Denise Murphy retired in May after 30 years in the Electrical Engineering department.


During her career in EE, Denise's warmth, judgment, caring, and knowledge of Stanford's sometimes confusing processes and conventions, benefitted many students, faculty, and staff. A revered colleague, Denise continues to be a trusted friend and ally for many staff.


The Denise Murphy Electrical Engineering Endowment

In honor of Denise, a number of faculty and former students endowed a fund in her honor; The Denise Murphy Electrical Engineering Endowment. This fund will be used to support department staff, in perpetuity. If you're interested in contributing, please contact EE's Director of Finance and Operations, Mary K. McMahon.

Although sad to see Denise leave our department, we all wish her tremendous satisfaction with her future adventures.
