Nominations Commission

About Us

The Nominations Commission (NomCom) is a body of undergraduate and graduate students charged with appointing students to various university committees which include the Board of Trustees, the Office of the President & Provost, Academic Council, and Student Affairs. It is essential that student voices shape University policies and NomCom makes this possible!

Serving on a university committee allows you to directly impact the Stanford community in unique ways. Committee members have opportunities to present their perspectives on student life and academic policies. Successful representatives will ensure that diverse student voices are incorporated into Committee planning. Undergraduate and graduate students from all disciplines and backgrounds are encouraged to apply. 

Please find the links to apply on the University Committees page.

Our Mission

The ASSU Nominations Commission seeks to empower the diverse Stanford University student body by executing the nomination and appointment of undergraduate and graduate students to committees and boards across the university. We strive to uplift and amplify the voices of all students within spaces where critical change is made and the representation of the Stanford University student body is necessary. With particular recognition afforded to the historical and ongoing exclusion of voices from marginalized communities, the ASSU Nominations Commission is committed to ensuring equitable and inclusive representation is implemented and valued across this institution.


Throughout the year, the Nominations Commission will host quarterly mixers for current committee representatives and ASSU elected representatives to build community and align on goals and priorities. 

Student representatives may host Office Hours or hold 1:1 conversations with relevant stakeholders as needed. Please reach out to student representatives directly for more information on the activity and progress of individual Committees.
