Information for Staff

Staff at Stanford work in hundreds of different types of positions, and number approximately 10,000. General employment policies are in Chapter 2 of the Administrative Guide (bargaining unit members should refer to their respective contracts).

Questions related to your employment are typically directed to the local (school or business unit) human resources contact except for Benefits, which is handled centrally by UHR. For school and unit HR contact information, see Contacts.

News & Announcements

  • Stanford employees are motivated to excel in the workplace, whether teaching or mentoring students, conducting or supporting research, caring for patients, or ensuring the efficiency and effectiveness of the university’s administrative processes and infrastructure. But when it comes to strategizing about career development, this subject can be daunting to tackle and by nature fits into the important but not urgent quadrant of time management.

  • This fall, new staff hires will be welcomed to Stanford through a redesigned orientation program that will centralize services resulting in significant time savings for new hires, managers and other departmental employees involved in the onboarding process.
