Our Mission

We, the ASSU Executive Branch, strive to facilitate engagement between students, workers, faculty, staff, and the community at large. In collaboration with these groups, we act in support of community needs both on and off campus. We hold ourselves and those we work with responsible for improving and maintaining high standards of accountability and transparency.

Our Initiatives

The entire ASSU Executive is dedicated to making the Stanford campus a place where everyone feels that they belong and can be successful. Our primary goals for this year fall under three key categories: (1) elevating student voices both within and beyond the University, (2) improving our community wellness by fighting for resources and recognition for all students, and (3) expanding the University's definition of community in order to protect the interests of campus service workers, the local community and the environment.

To help us achieve these goals, the ASSU Executive oversees a dedicated team of cabinet members who are responsible for specific initiatives. You can see a full list of our cabinet members and their initiatives here.

We’re here to serve you, so if you ever have questions about our work or want to get in touch with us, we encourage you to shoot us an email at any point in the year.

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.
