Self-Identification Race/Ethnicity, Veteran and Disability Status

"One of our most important Stanford University goals is to promote diversity and inclusion. We want to ensure that a diversity of cultures, races and ethnicities, gender and gender identity, sexual orientation, beliefs, abilities, backgrounds, and identities is thriving at Stanford and that diversity of thought, experience, and approach is represented in all aspects of our education and research mission." - Provost Drell

The request to self-identify is voluntary and can be changed at any time. This data assists us with assessing the effectiveness of our equal employment opportunity and affirmative action efforts. The data may be used in representations, such as the IDEAL dashboard, that illustrate the demographics of our community. These data displays will never identify your name or other identifying characteristics. However, in cases of very small group sizes, identifying data could be deduced by some viewers. In addition, as a federal government contractor, Stanford University is required to request information and periodically report on the gender, race, ethnicity, veteran, and disability status of our employees. 

How to Self-Identify:

1) Axess Portal > Employee Tab > Personal Information.

2) Submit one of the forms below to the Diversity & Access Office.
