Repeated incidents of anti-Asian rhetoric provoke University response

Stanford students who appear to be of Asian descent have been targeted by an individual in a slew of racially charged remarks around White Plaza. Such incidents, which students have reported have been ongoing since Autumn 2018, have included at least one middle-aged man yelling racial epithets, both on foot and on bike, and using slurs aimed at Asian and Asian-American students.

AAU Survey receives below average response rate ahead of May 10 deadline

Four weeks after its launch, only 52 percent of Stanford students have responded to the Association of American Universities (AAU) survey. The campus climate survey, which aims to assess the prevalence of sexual misconduct and assault on Stanford’s campus, was introduced after several years of debate surrounding the previous Stanford-specific survey that was conducted in 2015. Students have until May 10 to complete the survey, and all respondents receive a $20 Amazon gift card.
