Advisory Task Force on the History of Jewish Admissions and Experience at Stanford
January 11, 2022
Stanford has a created a task force to explore assertions, including a recent blog post, that it used admissions quotas to limit the number of Jewish students admitted to the university in the 1950s and to recommend steps for enhancing Jewish life on campus.
President Marc Tessier-Lavigne appointed the task force of faculty, staff, trustees, alumni and students, and directed that it report back to him and Provost Persis Drell in Spring 2022. He asked Tiffany Steinwert, dean for Religious and Spiritual Life, and Patrick Dunkley, vice provost for institutional equity, access and community, to develop a charge and support the task force.
