STANFORD Coalition for planning an equitable 2035 (scope 2035)

The Stanford Coalition for Planning an Equitable 2035 (SCoPE 2035) is a coalition of student groups with a vision for a more equitable Stanford, beginning with the General Use Permit (GUP) process. The General Use Permit is the agreement between Stanford University and Santa Clara County that, after negotiations and adoption, will specify the limits and requirements on Stanford’s future land use, growth, and development. The GUP is a powerful document in which Stanford, reflecting the priorities of Stanford community members, the County, and neighboring jurisdictions and communities, can make strong commitments to mitigate the impacts of its development and growth for the next two decades.
