The Office of Faculty Development, led by Vice Provosts Sarah Church and Matt Snipp, supports the faculty through a variety of programs, such as orientation, talks, workshops, and events for new and early career faculty, department chairs and deans, and initiatives supporting faculty diversity. The office assists in faculty recruitment and retention efforts to ensure that Stanford has an excellent and diverse faculty. The office works with deans, chairs and search committees with outreach efforts in developing talented and diverse applicant pools, and serves as a central resource for all faculty recruits and newly hired faculty in their transition to the Stanford community.
