The new role of senior associate vice provost for institutional equity and access will be filled by Lauren Schoenthaler.
Following a national search, the role of senior associate vice provost for institutional equity and access will be filled by Lauren Schoenthaler, a member of the Stanford community since 2001. She will be responsible for oversight, implementation and coordination of programs and offices that ensure equity and access across the Stanford community, including Title IX and sexual violence prevention programs.
“Stanford is committed to promoting a culture of genuine respect in which sexual harassment and misconduct have no place, and this new position reflects and reinforces that commitment,” said Provost John Etchemendy. “Lauren Schoenthaler is a leader on issues of equal opportunity, violence prevention and compassionate support for students. She also brings a deep knowledge of the Stanford community, effective relationships built over a 15-year period of service to the university and a dedication to ensuring educational opportunity for all students.”
