Stanford's Statement on Faculty Diversity by President John Hennessy and Provost John Etchemendy

President John Hennessy and Provost John Etchemendy presented the following statement on faculty diversity at a meeting of the Stanford Faculty Senate on May 31, 2001. The statement was subsequently endorsed by the Board of Trustees.

For many years Stanford University has had a commitment to enhancing the diversity of its faculty. This commitment is based, first and foremost, on the belief that a more diverse faculty enhances the breadth, depth and quality of our research and teaching by increasing the variety of experiences, perspectives and scholarly interests among the faculty. A diverse faculty also provides a variety of role models and mentors for our increasingly diverse student population, which helps us to attract, retain and graduate such populations more successfully.

The President and Provost subsequently reiterated and expanded their Statement on Diversity on April 19, 2007.
