Recent student initiatives aim to improve sexual assault prevention

Over the past few years, a diverse array of student organizations have sought to combat sexual assault on campus. Their initiatives have included workshops, conferences, student groups and collaboration with the administration — all of which tackle different aspects of the issue, including efforts in education and prevention, data transparency and University accountability and adjudication.

Students, alumni, faculty pressure Stanford to revisit Campus Climate Survey

Earlier this quarter, 1,975 undergraduate students—more than 90 percent of those who voted—voted in favor of a referendum asking Stanford to replace its Campus Climate Survey with that of the Association of American Universities, and to issue said survey every three years. On April 13, two days after the election results were announced, news broke that Stanford’s administration had decided to stand by their survey, though they also announced their intention to reissue it in 2018. In the weeks that followed, students, alumni, and faculty took to a variety of platforms to react, often critically, the administration’s decision. The Daily explores on the developments regarding the Campus Climate Survey and how the university intends to address its critics.
