Student Community Liaisons

Amplify student voices in the arts.

The Office of the Vice President for the Arts (VPA) is hiring a Student Community Liaison for the 2022-23 academic year. This is a paid position for current Stanford Students, which lasts through June 2023 with the option of continuing into the following year.



The Student Community Liaison will work with other students in the Stanford arts community to identify student needs (i.e. cultural, academic, pre-professional, art-making support) and help develop new communicative strategies for supporting arts students while promoting VPA events. As Stanford continues to transition back to in-person life, the role of the Student Community Liaison in building and redefining the campus arts community is pivotal.

VPA is seeking a passionate student who wishes to amplify student voices in the arts; create “feedback loops” between students and staff in the arts; and represent, acknowledge, and address the many interests and needs of different parties throughout the arts – students, faculty and staff.



  • Excitement to meet with and partner with VPA staff (pro-staff and students) and members of the students arts community;
  • Willingness to attend student-facing Arts events for an average of 3 hours per week total;
  • Broad knowledge of the student arts community;
  • Experience with standard office software (Word, Excel, etc.) as well as web tools for coordinating schedules and gathering information (when2meet, Google Forms, Survey Monkey);
  • Experience with event-planning and facilitation (i.e. running focus groups, conducting interviews, convening town halls);
  • Collaborative, critical, and strategic thinking and communication skills;
  • Skills and/or interest in data analysis, especially data like social media engagement, event success metrics (i.e. RSVPs, peak/total attendance, quantitative ratings), and qualitative feedback from focus groups and town halls.

Work may require completing physical tasks that involve standing, crouching, turning, running, pulling, pushing, lifting and carrying medium-heavy and heavy objects, reaching for items on tall shelves, and exposure to occasional handling of / exposure to media that features busy or sudden sounds and images, etc.
