Rick Sommer

Executive Director

Ph.D., University of California, Berkeley

After receiving his Ph.D. in mathematics from UC Berkeley, Rick came to Stanford as an assistant professor in the Mathematics Department. With a developing interest in pre-college programs, he helped launch the Stanford University Mathematics Camp (SUMaC) in 1995, and around the same time, became involved in Stanford's Education Program for Gifted Youth (EPGY). Rick has enthusiastically pursued these interests ever since. He now serves as Executive Director for Stanford Pre-Collegiate Studies.
