Cantor Arts Center director Susan Dackerman and deputy director James Gaddy both resigned following a months-long University investigation into the art museum’s toxic work culture.
While the three Stanford alums initially vying to be the Democratic nominee — Sen. Cory Booker ’91 M.A. ’92 (D-N.J.), Julián Castro ’96 and Tom Steyer MBA ’83 — dropped out of the race early, Stanford still made headlines in the days leading up to Election Day.
Incoming frosh are mourning the traditional first-year experience they’ll never have, and sophomores and juniors report that they are navigating a huge decision-making period in their college careers with less guidance and more uncertainty than ever.
Behind the Stanford museum's facade hides what many Cantor employees have called a toxic work culture, demoralizing museum leadership and a University administration that seems loath to substantively address repeated concerns.
The University has canceled nearly all in-person instruction for the upcoming fall quarter and is suspending its plans to provide on-campus housing to frosh, sophomores and incoming transfer students, according to an email obtained by The Daily from Provost Persis Drell to faculty.
In less than five days, a Sexual Violence Free Stanford petition calling for the drafting committee to implement the rest of the ASSU recommendations has amassed over 1,000 signatures. In that same amount of time, the Sexual Violence Free Stanford Instagram page has garnered nearly 650 followers.
Stanford students, faculty, postdoctoral scholars and staff can comment on the draft via email until 5 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 9. The new policies will go into effect on Aug. 14, per federal guidelines.
Stanford has also joined 19 other colleges and universities in a lawsuit seeking a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction on new “unwarranted and unlawful” ICE directive that would not allow international students to take a full online course load and remain in the United States.
At least two women who worked with Giacomini at the VA came forward, reporting repeated instances of physical and verbal sexual harassment, as well as “aggressive” pursuits of sexual relationships, stretching over a period of more than a decade.
Santa Clara County has seen its first death from coronavirus, the county’s public health department announced on Monday.

While William Rick Singer — ringleader of the college admissions scandal — “approached seven Stanford coaches about potential recruits” from 2009 to 2019, there was no evidence of additional fraud beyond the scheme involving former head sailing coach John Vandemoer.
University administrators are pursuing a plan to install a plaque at the contemplative garden using a quote Chanel Miller initially chose: "You took away my worth, my privacy, my energy, my time, my safety, my intimacy, my confidence, my own voice, until today."
A female reported that she may have been drugged on Saturday at 500 Mayfield Ave, possibly between the hours of 8 p.m. and 10 p.m., according to Stanford Public Safety.
A second plaque has appeared at the site of Chanel Miller’s sexual assault by former Stanford swimmer and convicted felon Brock Turner, which has since been re-landscaped into a contemplative garden.

In advance of his June 12 sentencing hearing, Vandemoer’s own sentencing memorandum makes the case for probation given that he did not personally pocket any money. Despite taking this into account in assessing the moral culpability of Vandemoer’s offense, the prosecutors maintain that prison time is necessary.
His termination occurred after an investigation, led by an outside attorney and an unnamed Stanford faculty member, found what Singh called “multiple violations of the University’s conduct policies.” The investigation was launched in response to “complaints relating to his conduct."
