What happened???

Lots of public high level fraud happened!!! Starting with the president, provost, athletic director and the previous head football coach.

One is gone already (fb coach), president and provost will be leaving soon.
The AD needs to get a clue and hit the road asap.

Any other fraudsters remaining please leave.

What happened is that Stanford refuses to acknowledge that places have limits and grew their campus, research and development organization, students, workers and infrastructure to levels that are destroying the area. They have environmental departments but don't seem to understand that more people mean more pollution, consumption and environmental destruction. They seem to only be interested in covering every square inch of the campus and surrounding area with concrete buildings that will bring them money with no interest in the carrying capacity of the environment.

Stanford Law School DEI administrator Tirien Steinbach resigned from her post on Thursday, months after a viral altercation when she accosted a conservative judge. Dean Jenny Martinez announced Steinbach's departure in a Thursday message to the campus, saying Steinbach had found another opportunity to pursue.
