Search Committee Resources

Stanford encourages the vigorous recruitment and retention of women and minorities as well as others whose backgrounds and experiences would provide additional dimensions to enhance the university’s programs. The following faculty recruitment practices (click on links in the left navigation bar) are offered as guidelines to assist schools and departments in achieving an excellent and diverse faculty.

The online Faculty Search Toolkit site is provided by the VPFDD Office to supplement search materials and guidance provided by schools and departments. It serves as a confidential resource for faculty search committee members and departmental search administrators working on active searches in the current academic year. It includes  best-practice pointers for setting up and conducting effective searches; and school- and department-specific resources for implementing the guidelines.

Search administrators can download a copy of Faculty Search Administrator's Resource Guide.
