ASSU Special Committees

ASSU Special Committees

During Spring Quarter 2019, the ASSU recognized the need to change how it addresses student concerns and focus on incorporating more student input in its various initiatives, while also making the work that it does more transparent and readily available to the average student. With these goals in mind, the ASSU created 13 Special Committees, each focused on a specific aspect or project related to student advocacy on campus. ASSU President Erica Scott invited all members of the Stanford community in addition to various ASSU leaders to form and participate in these Committees. The names, chair contract information, and mission statement can be found in the following table, with links to detailed project information also provided.
