In a statement issued in The Stanford Report today, the University announced that the Leland Stanford Junior University Marching Band (LSJUMB) will be barred from performance at any away athletic events for one year.
We join with all members of this community in listening to one another and working together to make Stanford the kind of place where every person and voice feels valued. And we are always open to hearing your ideas about creating spaces for open discussion and building community, so please do not hesitate to contact any of us.
