Julie Lythcott-Haims

President, FCE Board of Directors

Author/Former University Dean

Julie Lythcott-Haims was Stanford’s first dean of freshmen, a position she created in order to help students feel a strong sense of belonging within the university’s community of scholars. She held this position for ten years and in 2010 received Stanford’s Lloyd W. Dinkelspiel Award for exceptional contributions to undergraduate education. A graduate of Stanford University as well as Harvard Law School, Julie most recently completed an MFA in Creative Writing at California College of the Arts in San Francisco. She remains deeply interested in humans living lives of meaning and purpose, and encourages the young and young-at-heart alike to have the courage to find their voice and honor what they hear. She is author of the New York Times best seller “How to Raise an Adult: Break Free of the Overparenting Trap and Prepare Your Kid for Success” (Henry Holt, 2015) and a memoir on race, entitled, “Real American.”
