Residents of each house on campus can customize their Stanford experience by engaging in what we call Dorm Government‚ or DormGov for short. All houses with Resident Fellows have a DormGov, while houses on The Row have the Student Manager Program, which takes the place of DormGov. Typically, DormGov manages the DormFunds, in conjunction with House Staff.
DormGov meets once a week with the guidance of an RA, a Specialist Staff member, or both. Students on DormGov inform key decisions around the culture of the house; what kinds of events take place in the house; how the house uses its DormFunds; and how the house connects/interacts with the rest of campus. Of course, the exact role that DormGov plays, including its level of activity & engagement, varies by house and by year.
