The Office of Faculty Development, Diversity and Engagement is committed to developing faculty across the career span and offers a number of faculty development and engagement activities at each career phase. From providing information about opportunities for connection and networking to sharing strategies to maintain momentum on the journey toward tenure and promotion, the resources on this page are intended to help support early career faculty to be successful at Stanford. 

Promotion and Tenure

Stanford's policy and process related to promotions and tenure are described in the Faculty Handbook.

Faculty are encouraged to check with their school for any specific policies and procedures. 

Eligible pre-tenure faculty will be invited to attend an annual Tenure Conversation event.

Faculty Affairs

The Faculty Affairs division of the Provost's Office is responsible for implementation of University policy regarding appointments and promotions, salary setting, leaves, endowed chair appointments, appeals, and other matters of an academic nature.
