  • Faculty Senate: The Faculty Senate will hold an emergency meeting via Zoom at 2 p.m. on Thursday, March 26, to discuss and vote on academic policy exceptions requested by the Academic Continuity Group. The group is working to ensure that Stanford’s academic mission remains strong and functioning during the COVID-19 disruption. Since a quorum is required to vote on the proposed policy exceptions, the Office the Academic Secretary asks senators to let the office know if they will be able to attend. Discussion is limited to members of the senate, but members of the Stanford community may request to attend the meeting by contacting Adrienne Emory.

  • Heads Up: Most on-campus construction projects are on hold. The university plans to move forward on two high-priority projects: Escondido Village Graduate Residences and the installation of temporary chillers for the Central Energy Facility. They are considered "Essential Infrastructure" because they support critical housing and infrastructure for the campus community. Learn more on the Heads Up website.
