“Stanford has a major responsibility to shape students’ knowledge and perception of the world. We must be able to teach them about the great cultures, literatures, religions, and societies through programs like the  Abbasi Program in Islamic Studies. My aim is to strengthen this program by adding faculty experts to departments across the humanities and social sciences and providing the language training necessary to meet growing student interest.” — Richard Saller, the Vernon R. and Lysbeth Warren Anderson Dean of the School of Humanities and Sciences
