  • Postponement of External Review Forums: External reviewers are evaluating Stanford’s Title IX and sexual harassment programming and services.

  • Stanford has encouraged cancellation, postponement or livestreaming of events likely to attract 150 or more people through April 15. Check the Stanford Events calendar for updates on specific events.
