On May 7, 2021, Assistant Dean for Career Development and External Relations Molly Stafford received the University of the Pacific’s Podesto Award for Excellence in Student Life, Mentoring and Counseling. This is a well-deserved award that recognizes the care and tireless commitment Molly shows while serving McGeorge students. Her leadership has helped raise our students to new levels of excellence and success.

“[Molly] does her work with her heart and her head. Under her leadership, not only has the McGeorge Career Development Office achieved the best U.S. News Jobs rate in the law school’s history (during a pandemic!), but also has demonstrated commitments to the whole student (by emphasizing work-life balance, student empowerment, and students’ dreams for themselves) and to diversity, equity, and inclusion.”

– Dean Michael Hunter Schwartz, McGeorge School of Law

Thank you, Dean Stafford, for all you have done and continue to do. McGeorge is lucky and proud to have someone of your caliber leading us and our students.
