At Stanford, we believe that career growth should be personal—tailored to the strengths and ambitions of each person. We also believe that personal growth should be encouraged and supported—so that everyone at Stanford can enjoy a healthy work-life integration.

Whether staff members want to change jobs within the university, take continuing education courses, obtain career counseling or even pursue a degree at another college or university, Stanford is behind them. The university provides a host of programs and resources to help employees advance their careers.
