In an effort to mitigate potential impacts of Stanford’s General Use Permit (GUP) application, the University has agreed to provide the Palo Alto Unified School District (PAUSD) with a $138.4 million community benefits package over 40 years, Stanford announced Monday.
The announcement marks the conclusion of a two-month-long internal review into faculty members’ connections with the Chinese scientist who ignited global controversy.
Quake shared email correspondence between him and He Jiankui with The Times in an attempt to dispel the allegations that he had been involved with the Chinese scientist’s work in gene-editing embryos.
By a margin of less than 0.5 percent — 19 votes — in the final count, Erica Scott ’20 and Isaiah Drummond ’20 were elected Associated Students of Stanford University (ASSU) executives over Kimiko Hirota ’20 and Bryce Tuttle ’20.
At only 34.3 percent total voter turnout, the election saw only half of undergraduates participating, and only 21.9 percent of the graduate student population — numbers lower than last year’s 57.4 percent and 34.1 percent, respectively.
U.S. presidential candidate and former U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Julián Castro ’96 attended a Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Local 2007 meeting on March 30 to discuss his support for campus workers in their upcoming contract negotiations with the University.
The hike, at between 12 and 15 percent from the last academic year, depending on how many dependents a student has, marks an increase of roughly 80 percent since 2013-2014.
