Five out of my seven Facebook cover photos over the last four years have been Stanford Daily recruitment pitches. They feature the usual cut-and-paste blurbs of hype, dangling the prospect of “interviewing prominent campus visitors,” getting “front-row press passes to sporting events,” and, of course, eating free Treehouse pizza every night at production.
Stanford placed a moratorium on new research support from Huawei in December 2018 amid rising U.S. pressure on the telecoms company because of its potential threat to national security. The Faculty Senate was not asked to discuss or vote on the moratorium before the policy was quietly implemented.
“No laptops.” For most students, it’s an easy ask — a common refrain among professors sick of pupils checking Facebook during discussion. For Bryce Tuttle ’20, it’s a problem. Tuttle’s dyslexia means he writes slowly and nearly illegibly. Typing helps him keep up. Last winter, as usual, he emailed an instructor his letter from Stanford’s…
Katipamula said she began thinking about assembling a joint comment back in November when the Department of Education released its intended revisions.
StartX provides mentorship and other resources to Stanford-affiliated startups. The Stanford-StartX Fund, created in 2013, uses University money to invest in StartX ventures alongside other groups.
The Theta Delta Chi (TDX) fraternity will lose its housing at the end of this school year, after the University found for the fourth year in a row that the group “needs improvements” to meet Stanford’s “Standards of Excellence” (SOE) governing reviews of Greek organizations. The fraternity plans to appeal the decision, and will receive a final outcome from Residential Education (ResEd) by Feb. 1.
If adopted, U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos’ proposed changes to federal guidance on colleges’ sexual assault policies would likely require Stanford to revise several key aspects of its Title IX system, according to an analysis by the University’s Office of Institutional Equity and Access.
A class action lawsuit alleges that Stanford violated federal law by failing to get proper consent from prospective employees before performing background checks.
As college sexual assault policies draw increased scrutiny amid ongoing federal changes, documents reviewed by The Daily suggest that Stanford has publicly misrepresented aspects of its own Title IX practices.
On March 7, 2007, Philip Zimbardo used his last lecture at Stanford to declare that he’d left his most famous experiment behind. Capping off a discussion of the 1971 findings that made him a public figure, movie character and textbook staple, the renowned psychology professor told the audience he was ready to start probing acts…
The pin was vulgar beyond words — a grinning UC Berkeley bear, bent over what is meant to be an Indian, a half-clothed, black-braided man whose blobby shape resembles a Dino nugget. This wasn’t vintage memorabilia, someone’s token from their college days back in the 60s when Stanford’s mascot was still the Indian. This shiny…
President Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin discussed the possibility of Russian authorities questioning Stanford professor and former ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Wednesday.
When I first joined The Daily as a high school intern, I was just getting used to the idea that journalists had to call people on the phone.
When I walked into the screening of the movie “Kusama – Infinity,” a handful of people were already there, gathered on the green couches of FloMo, eyes glued to the screen. They were all familiar faces, except for the one woman in the corner, about my mom’s age—wearing casual khakis, and a serious expression as…
Sterling K. Brown ’98 called on graduates at Stanford’s Commencement to let their “light shine” by embracing their strengths and passions for the broader good while not worrying about matching others’ achievements.
Pursuing challenge in our academic home territory comes easily to us. We’re eager to push ourselves in the areas we already have aptitude in. It’s harder, in our four short years at Stanford, to prioritize challenges outside our areas of strength.
Stuck in my Head Yellow light Lasers – daisies – Budding, implicit In thin air – blooming In a bed of powder – white Silk upon your upper lip, Fertilizing growth – Feeding lust – With a sharp inhale – A breath of fresh air, And signal to my fingers – The roots at your…
