"No decisions about us, without us"

We are a team of undergraduate and graduate students passionate about student representation at the decision-making table. Shanta is a junior and a former ASSU Undergraduate Senate Chair and Rosie is a PhD candidate in the Graduate School of Education and current Graduate Student Council Co-Chair. Together, we have cultivated strong working relationships with the highest levels of Stanford’s administration.

Below are just a few highlights of our initiatives under each theme but we are happy to chat in greater detail about all of the ways in which we can work to make Stanford better. Feel free to reach out to skatipam@stanford.edu and crnelson@stanford.edu if you want to get to know us and our ...

Undergraduate Senate candidates

Jennifer Luo (pending validation)

Hi! I’m Jen and I’m running for ASSU Undergraduate Senate. I’ve spent the past two quarters falling in love with Stanford and the people on this campus and I want to do everything in my power to make Stanford a better place. My goal is to make Stanford a place of enfranchisement (after a year of disenfranchisement post 2016 election). That means a few things.

1. Holding Stanford to a clear statement of core values, principles, and goals in decision-making.

A. Racial and Class Diversity

This means committing Stanford to affirmative action to maintain diversity in the face of impending civil rights actions and suits; affirmative action is the only reason for increased diversification in our admissions practices. This means committing Stanford to becoming by all definitions a “sanctuary campus” and giving advanced notice of impending inspections, partnerships with the Stanford Sanctuary Now initiative, clarifying and publicizing ...

Student voices deserve to be taken seriously. I hope to bring them to Stanford's faculty and administration as an advocate for our shared interest in building both a better school and home here. At the same time, I am also convinced that we could all stand to benefit from more conversations with each other. I hope to help initiate such conversations, bridging divides that split our polarized campus and building trust between communities. I am running for senate because I believe in the possibilities of dialogue, as well as those of student government. My platform centers on increasing opportunities for student engagement with Stanford's institutions and with each other.

I am Vice President of the Stanford Democrats and serve on a statewide caucus of the California Young Democrats. I support divest from private prisons and fossil fuels; I support Israel. I want to pursue measures to better protect ...

Hi! My name is Faatimah Solomon and I am a freshman running for ASSU Undergrad Senate. In a nutshell, I'm running because I believe that it is important to uplift and represent the voices of students from marginalized communities and to advocate for issues that affect our communities. My goal is to make sure that the needs of students of color, LGBTQIA+ students, indigenous students, FLI students, students with disabilities, and our workers are met by holding the University accountable for maintaining the values that create a more just and equitable Stanford that belongs to each and every single one of us. Additionally, I want to advocate for transparency regarding administrative policies and practices so that students know how decisions that affect them are being made.

Hi everyone, my name is Rodolfo Salazar and I am a Freshman running for ASSU Senate. I believe that Stanford has a responsibility (and adequate funds) to fully support the needs of every student on campus, yet this is not what we see. As an ASSU Representative, I will work to change this by advocating for a fair distribution of funds to the various groups and communities on campus. Furthermore, I will work to facilitate conversations between communities to increase the level of understanding and respect that every community needs. As a Senator, I will work to elevate the voices of low-income students, first generation students, students of color, and LGBTQ students.

Dear Beloved Community,

I’m excited to announce our bid for the ASSU Undergraduate Senate. Yes, not MY campaign, but OUR campaign. This campaign strives to strengthen our communities through inclusion of ideas. especially those voices who are silenced, practically unheard, as they are lost in the Winds, that were supposed to stand strong for everyone’s Freedom.

This is OUR year. As a member of the Senate, I will work vigorously on your behalf to make the change that we want to see in our community.

I am here to represent you. I need to hear what you have to say. I may be relatively new to the Stanford Community, but I come from a experience and a lineage of previous Stanford Senators and Executives, that steered our community in the right direction.

If you don't want to read my whole platform: I am running on the platform of common sense. I will fight greater allocation of funding to present and future students, a louder voice for all students regardless of background (most immediately for those from marginalized communities), the establishment of a sanctuary campus, implementation of improvements for students with disabilities, environmental accountability (including fossil fuel divestment), and transparency -- because ALL OF THESE THINGS JUST MAKE SENSE for us students. If you have any questions, feel free to email me at joshnkoy@stanford.edu. Thank you!

Michal Skreta (pending validation)

Access to university resources should be as simple as possible. Let's make it a reality.

Through my involvement in Frosh Council and the ASSU as a Senate Associate, I learned about the minutiae of university operations. Whether I was discussing the prospects for need-blind admissions for international students with university leaders, examining the UAR's progress on revamping the PMA program on the Senate Academic Affairs Committee or benchmarking the transparency of Stanford investments, I understood how to initiate change in a quick and comprehensive manner.

What will I advocate for if I am elected?

• Streamlining the funding process for student groups

• Eliminating additional course fees

• Establishing need-blind financial aid for international students

• Making university gyms open for 24 hours

• Abolishing printing fees

• Expanding accessibility on campus for people with disabilities

• Increasing transparency of Stanford's investments

• And many more to come!

Tim Vrakas: A Candidate Dedicated to Change

Advocacy

The ASSU is more than a system to distribute student funds, It’s nominal mission is to “advance our interests” as students provide for “meaningful participation in the governance” of the University. While the Administration does value the input of students, their interests will always be different than ours in some way. I believe that the interests of the student body are unique and worth fighting for. The Senate is in the singular position of having autonomy and financial authority, and that position is not one I would waste. I pledge to support the position of students second to nothing. Achiving this mission means both knowing the opinions of the students, and identifying issues that we as a senate can address. Why are quesadillas 8$ at Arrillaga? Which student groups are doing the most for the campus, and which are not pulling ...

Hi friends, My name is Saron Dea and I'm a sophomore living at 576. I'm running for undergraduate senate to bring a spirit of fresh energy and enthusiasm into the ASSU. In my year and a half as a Stanford undergrad, I've been involved in a wide range of activities that have allowed me to work closely with delightful individuals from all over campus. It didn't take long for me to figure out that the primary barrier in turning student ideas into reality is resources, which as we all know, Stanford has in abundance. Unfortunately, our campus tends to be overcast by the same bureaucratic fog that is characteristic of most institutions, leaving many of the school's most vulnerable communities feeling even further marginalized and neglected. If elected to the undergraduate senate, I will make it my priority to ensure that student ...

With a year on the Senate behind me, I know just what the ASSU can and cannot do. I’ve spent the last year learning the ins and outs of student government at Stanford, and I’m running for reelection to keep putting that knowledge to work. During my first term, I’ve been committed to transparency, equitable funding, and good governance. I’m currently working on Stanford’s inexcusable lack of transparency in its investments, particularly in the wake of the revelations of the Paradise Papers. Without some basic access to information, we can’t hold the university accountable, especially for its complicity in global climate change. In my first year in office, I authored and passed comprehensive conflict-of-interest reform and created a legislative style guide to make writing bills easy and accessible to all students, not just senators.

I believe the Senate can more effectively represent the student body if we increase the amount of communication between senators and their constituents.

This means holding Town Halls so that the student body can make sure their concerns are being heard in real-time instead of every election cycle.

This means senators produce monthly updates (through electronic means) for students about what we’ve achieved and what we have yet to accomplish.
