The University has recently launched a series of focus groups with students to gain feedback about the state of Stanford’s student unions.
During spring quarter finals week, Old Union hosted a technology camp for high schoolers, rather than accommodating Stanford students studying for exams.
Following a report commissioned earlier this year, the ASSU assembled a working group to review use of student union spaces. The group has since launched several initiatives to repurpose spaces in Old Union and surrounding buildings and has encouraged further use of union spaces.

The ASSU and the Office of the Vice Provost for Student Affairs (VPSA) are forming a working group to review use of the Old Union complex following a preliminary report that stated Old Union is not serving the Stanford community to its full potential.
