Faculty Directory Listings

StanfordWho contains directory information for and about current Stanford faculty and staff. Stanford community members may choose to keep some or all of their contact information private in the public and Stanford-only versions of the directory.

Typing on Computer

Faculty may change their own information using Axess on the web or by using StanfordYou for service-related information (e.g., email settings). See StanfordYou for details. Faculty and staff may also change their own personal demographic information in StanfordYou. Changes relating to endowed chairs are made by the Faculty Affairs Office: requests for such changes may be submitted to Lynn Dixon.

Lists for University Purposes

The University maintains lists of the names, addresses, telephone numbers and electronic mail accounts of faculty members. Distribution lists not publicly available may be used only for University purposes. Use of the distribution lists — including production of listings of file contents, production of mailing labels, and online use of electronic mail distribution lists — is authorized only when all of the criteria below are met:

  • The organization is responsible to the President of the University;
  • The use is for official University business; and
  • When such use is consistent with the University responsibilities of the individual requesting or using the list.

University distribution lists may not, for example:

  • Be used for personal, partisan political or commercial purposes;
  • Be provided to persons or entities outside the University;
  • Be used for promotional purposes or solicitations by other than Stanford University.

Requests for lists may be submitted to Lynn Dixon in the Faculty Affairs Office.
