Faculty Leaves-in-Service is a pilot program of the Social X-Change, in partnership with the Haas Center for Public Service.
This program is intended to complement and extend existing leave opportunities for faculty at Stanford with a primary focus on the exchange of learning and expertise around an identified social problem. We will provide financial and staff resources to identify and support placements for a summer, quarter, or up to a year (4 quarters) in public sector agencies and nonprofit organizations.
These placements are designed to support in-depth, hands-on learning about a social problem and existing approaches to tackling it. The ideal placement will enable the exchange of complementary skills and expertise, and should both add value to the hosting organization and help to advance the faculty member’s thinking about his/her own research. Faculty members can identify and negotiate their own placement or work with the Social X-Change and Haas Center team to develop an appropriate placement.
