Three months after their daughter, Stanford women's soccer goalie Katie Meyer, death,
her parents, Steve and Gina Meyer, have suggested a university
policy that they feel may have saved her life. "Katie's Save" would
enable the students to opt into a program that would alert an advocate of their choice through email if
they faced difficult situations, such as physical health, mental health, academic
challenges or disciplinary concerns. The Meyers were shocked to learn that Katie, 22,
had been dealing with a university disciplinary matter without their knowing for six months.
It's unknown how responsive institutions will be to adopting a policy like "Katie's Save."
