"I believe she is one of the most caring professors I have had in my college career. Still today, she is always willing to answer all my questions and go the extra mile for me. Apart from being an exemplary professor in the classroom and a great role model for all students not just her own, she personally taught me the great life lesson that you can always find ways to better yourself... I can truthfully say she is not only a wonderful professor, but an inspiring Latin woman and a spirited mentor to me."

​​​​​“While many professors depict moral decisions to be black and white or right and wrong, Professor Sanford guided us through how to handle ethical gray areas and how to make the right decisions. Outside the classroom, Professor Sanford  also regularly followed up with me and several other graduate students in order to acquire deeper insights into our professional aspirations and the resources available to help us realize our post-graduation goals; this type of guidance and commitment to students and alumni -- in my opinion – it is at the heart of a true mentoring relationship.”

Se realizó en la Facultad de Derecho UC el Punto de Encuentro: Crisis en Venezuela, que contó con la participación del Director de la División de las Américas de Human Rights Watch, José Miguel Vivanco.

La actividad fue organizada por el Centro de Estudios Internacionales de la Universidad Católica, con el apoyo del profesor Derecho UC, Hernán Salinas, y el consejero del CEIUC, Sergio Romero. Entre los asistentes, destacaron académicos de distintas universidades, miembros del cuerpo diplomático y personeros de América Latina. En el encuentro, Vivanco desarrolló un extenso análisis sobre la situación venezolana, en el que manifestó una dura crítica al gobierno de Venezuela. "Cuesta entender que un régimen por razones ideológicas no reconozca la profunda crisis humanitaria que vive su país. Y aún más, que tampoco pida, ni permita, la ayuda internacional para paliar tal crisis".

"Adriana has the rare ability to see the big picture, yet be highly detailed... Her ethical standards and moral character are beyond reproach. We were law school classmates at Notre Dame and have been long time personal friends."

"Although I was a Supply Chain Management major located on the Tempe campus, this was one of my favorite and most memorable classes in my four years at the university. I would voluntarily commute an hour each way between campuses to attend Professor Sanford’s weekly lectures because I viewed her as an outstanding teacher and career mentor. Every lecture was fascinating, involving vivid real world examples and group participation, which sparked my fascination with international business law and continued education opportunities.

I had the opportunity to accompany Professor Sanford to the Institute for Supply Management Annual Conference in May 2015 where she was a guest speaker. This was my first exposure to business conferences and international supply chain careers. This is also where I first gained an interest in the Boeing Company, for whom I later became an intern in Supplier Management. ​Professor Sanford introduced me to other students and professionals that shared my career interests and goals, encouraging me to build a network of mentors and role models. This event opened my eyes to the endless possibilities within Business and the amazing opportunities I was given as a college student in exchange for dedication and goal setting."

"[Sanford] brings a passion for teaching and a concern for all of her students....On numerous occasions, I have seen her go above and beyond the norm to take care of her students...She is continually looking to improve her classes, to better take care of her students."

"Her advice was critical to many of the decisions I have made, and I was certain that she helped me make the best choice for me.... I will always be grateful for the guidance that Professor Sanford gave me in this process. I know that I am in the best position for the career I want, because of her guidance."

"Sanford is an illustrious alumna of GULC, having earned a dual LLM in Taxation and International & Comparative Law. We have been delighted by her re-affiliation with the Law Center. Her scholarship and international service during her tenure as a Dean's Visiting Scholar has reflected very well on GULC."

"The lessons I learned in her course about ethics, justice, and international business extended far beyond a scantron, they ascended to the level of executive decision makers in boardrooms and political leaders throughout the world. Professor Sanford recognizes her students will go on to be future leaders in those very settings and therefore teaches at an academic and intellectual level that stimulates the intense thought required to solve the numerous complex and ethically obscure dilemmas of the United States and the world at large..."

"It has been my experience that Professor Sanford has always gone out of her way to help students in any way possible. She tries to guide them in the right direction and offers assistance where necessary. Whether it is to find a job or choose the right career path, she is someone who is always willing to lend a helping hand or give some sound advice. She is more than just a teacher, she has been my friend and my mentor.Though Professor Sanford is no longer my teacher, she is still just a phone call or email away whenever I have a question or another difficult decision to make. We need more professors like her in this world to encourage students to stay in school. Professors with strong work ethics, who are passionate about their job and willing to put in extra work hours beyond what is expected in class. They make a difference in our future."

"It is not easy to write about Dr. Sanford in a concise way, since she has had such a profound impact on my life both personally and academically....  Dr. Sanford has led a remarkable life and has helped countless people—including myself— who may have not had a chance to succeed without her intervening on our behalves. She is loved and revered by her students.... It’s hard to imagine how many lives Dr. Sanford has touched, but there will undoubtedly be a ripple effect in teaching the leaders of tomorrow the importance of acting ethically."
