ASSU's goal is to uplift student voices and make sure that in every administrative decision that impacts students, student voices are being heard as part of the decision making process, especially marginalized voices. Recent initiatives include installing an accessible emergency contraction vending machine in Old Union and ensuring as many students as possible were able to participate in interviews for the new Title IX Coordinator.
U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos released her proposal to fundamentally alter the way campus sexual violence is addressed on Friday, Nov. 16 . While DeVos claims she wants a more fair process for all, the overwhelming theme of her proposed changes is reduced institutional accountability. The ASSU strongly opposes these changes. The 60 day notice and comment period where individuals can provide comments at regulations.gov on the proposed changes closes on Jan. 28, 2019.
To that end, as your ASSU Executives, we have introduced a bill in the Undergraduate Senate and Graduate Student Council to participate in the 60 day notice and comment period that will be voted on at the beginning of Winter Quarter. We encourage you to email email@example.com if you have specific comments you would like us to consider and include. We believe that we must utilize the privilege and platform that we have as Stanford students to be vocal in our opposition to these changes.
