Faculty Development Initiative
Center for Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity
To contribute to Stanford’s ongoing commitment to promoting the comparative study of race and ethnicity and to promoting faculty diversity, the Center for Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity (CCSRE), in collaboration with the Provost, launched the Faculty Development Initiative (FDI). Announced by the Provost in spring 2007, the FDI’s primary goal is to facilitate the appointment of a least ten outstanding new faculty across the University that will help expand the research and teaching mission of the CCSRE as it enters its second decade. Over the next five years the CCSRE’s Faculty Development Initiative will create a collaborative environment where schools and departments will participate in a multifaceted recruitment and appointment project to hire junior and senior faculty in subject areas focusing on issues of race and ethnicity. The initiative is a collaborative arrangement between the CCSRE, the Office of the Provost, the Office of the Vice Provost for Faculty Development, Diversity & Engagement, and the Office of the Dean of H&S. The FDI will employ multiple strategies for recruitment and appointment of faculty. An Advisory Group consisting of senior faculty will provide advice and consultation for the initiative.
