ASSU and SSE Rebranding Celebration

This year marks the 25th anniversary of the financial independence of the Associated Students of Stanford University (ASSU) and Stanford Student Enterprises (SSE), and to celebrate, the ASSU and SSE are excited to announce our new rebranding. 

Come celebrate with us during Week 4 to see our new logos and pick up some free food and swag! See a full list of our events and RSVP on our Facebook page.

Avenues for Change Week

Avenues for Change Week is an exciting event that centers activist and change maker voices on campus, their movements, and the different centers, resources, and avenues on campus that activists and students adjacent to activism can utilize and/or learn from.

Join student leaders, faculty, staff, administrators, trustees, and alumni in conversation about how change happens at Stanford and how you could get plugged in! 

Events will occur throughout Week 4. To learn more or RSVP, visit the event site.

Avenues for Change. Events throughout week 4. Institution Unmasked on Sunday 1/26 from 1 PM to 5:30 PM (Lunch served at 12:30 PM). Mapping Activism on Tuesday 1/28 from 3 PM to 5 PM. Community Center Open Houses on Wednesday 1/29 from 11 AM to 1 PM.

Community Conversations on Mental Health

On February 3 and 4, Stanford is organizing a two-day conversation on mental health and well-being for the entire campus community. The event will include a series of workshops, roundtables, and presentations on how to manage stress, build resilience and support others.

We hope you’ll be able to attend all or some of the sessions that speak to you and find them informative, empowering, encouraging and useful. You can learn more and RSVP by visiting this website.

Additionally, they are in need of volunteers to help out during the conference at the main campus location (Paul Brest Hall).
Volunteers would be needed for about 2-hour slots throughout the day to do a variety of tasks such as greeting guests, managing crowds, and help with a roving mike during Q&As.

If you are interested in volunteering, please sign up for a shift and complete the volunteer registration form by Monday, January 27th. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to Katya Kuzmina (

Conversation with the President and Provost

We believe it is important for students to have access to decision makers on campus, which is why are excited to announce that the ASSU is cohosting a conversation with President Marc Tessier-Lavigne and Provost Persis Drell.

This is a great opportunity to let the President and Provost know what matters to you and to get your questions answered over dessert. This event will be from 7- 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 28, at Branner Dining Hall. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m.

RSVP to the Facebook event and view the university event page for more information.

Updates from Sexual Violence Town Hall

cw: mentions of sexual violence

On December 3rd, the ASSU held a town hall with Provost Persis Drell regarding sexual violence on campus. Many of you took time out of your busy Week 10 to show up and voice your concerns with the administration, and we want to commend you for that. 

Since then, the Provost has spent more time thinking over your questions and has released a document answering the over 90 questions submitted at the town hall.

We highly encourage you to take the time to review the document as it discusses Title IX, Chanel Miller, recent SU alerts, and many other topics related to sexual violence on campus.

We also highly encourage you to check out this comprehensive report on sexual violence support and prevention, which was compiled by Senator Jonathan Lipman and unanimously endorsed by the Undergraduate Senate and Graduate Student Council.

In order for our community to tackle these issues, it is important that we remain informed and work collaboratively at all levels. We hope you will take the time to continue working with us towards meaningful, institutional change, and as always, you are always welcome to reach out to us.
