The Provost’s Committee on Lecturers has issued its final report regarding core academic teaching staff appointments at Stanford.
Stanford relies on core academic teaching staff for the execution of the teaching mission of the university. Core academic teaching staff include lecturers, senior lecturers and other non- academic council appointments that may involve a teaching role such as Adjunct Professors at Stanford.
Given the importance of this group to our teaching mission, we believe it is important to clarify their roles within the university, as well as identify and implement guidelines for career definition, development, and advancement in this line.
