The Institute empowers students and scholars in three key ways:

Plaque installed at Attneave House recognizes Chanel Miller and sexual assault survivors

The patio of Carolyn Lewis Attneave House, home of the Clayman Institute, now features a plaque inscribed with a quote from Chanel Miller. The plaque was installed recently to honor Miller and all sexual assault survivors. In 2015, Miller was assaulted on campus by Stanford student Brock Turner. The quote is an excerpt from Miller's victim impact statement. Last year, Miller revealed her identity and published a widely praised memoir, Know My Name.
