Trees Together

Main content start

Near or far, we are all Trees Together. Student Affairs adopted the slogan Trees Together to represent our collective efforts to protect the health and safety of the Stanford community during the COVID-19 pandemic. Colorful, engaging, and easy to understand materials were developed to keep students informed of rapidly changing national, state, and local public health advisories.

COVID-19 Online Communications Toolkit

The Student Affairs Communication Team compiled COVID-19 materials to share with campus partners to offer timely and clear communications with students, student staff, and departments across campus. This hub provided Stanford colleagues with a single location to find COVID-19 information that they could use to help promote in their respective areas and refer to as questions arose.

Vax Up and Mask Up

Materials on face covering requirements for students were developed to provide clarity to Stanford’s requirements for students on campus amidst the changing national, state, and county COVID-19 public health guidance. These materials were shared on the COVID-19 Guidance for Students website and posted throughout student residential areas, and throughout dining facilities within R&DE.

Trees Together, Mask Together

This campaign sought to reinforce the use of face covering as the COVID-19 Delta variant began to spike at the start of winter quarter. Tree puns were used to remind students of face covering requirements, usage, and effectiveness, as well as reminding students to retain their connections with others and reach out support during this challenging time. These materials were posted on the COVID-19 Guidance for Students website, throughout R&DE dining facilities, and the front desk of each residential neighborhood. Banners were hung in Tresidder Memorial Union and Old Union.
