Stein Receives Alumni Service Award

Professor Robert A. Stein received the Alumni Service Award, the University’s highest honor for alumni volunteerism, at the 2006-07 volunteer awards ceremony presented by the University of Minnesota Alumni Association (UMAA) on October 30. Recipients are nominated by a University unit, and the award is conferred by the Board of Regents. Professor Stein was instrumental in bringing Sandra Day O’Connor to the 2006 UMAA Annual Celebration during his term as UMAA president and has strengthened ties between the UMAA and the Law School Alumni Association. In accepting the award, Stein urged the audience to join him in “paying back the U.”
