The Arthur and Toni Rembe Rock Center for Corporate Governance

The Arthur and Toni Rembe Rock Center for Corporate Governance is a joint initiative of Stanford Law School and the Graduate School of Business at Stanford University. The Center was created to advance the understanding and practice of corporate governance in a cross-disciplinary environment where leading academics, business leaders, policy makers, practitioners and regulators can meet and work together.

The Rock Center for Corporate Governance was founded at Stanford University in 2006 with a generous donation from Arthur and Toni Rembe Rock, with the belief that by examining these issues in new and more rigorous ways, we could shape the future of corporate governance.

Led by faculty from Stanford Law School and the Graduate School of Business, the Rock Center provides an environment focused on innovation and collaboration, drawing on the world-class resources of Stanford University. The center's programs – and the leading researchers, legal practitioners, and business and policy experts they attract create a forum in which key questions can be tested and explored. The Rock Center provides a focal point for sustained empirical research and sponsors a diverse series of events including seminars, conferences, and guest speakers addressing real-world governance practices.
