The Stanford Center for Racial Justice is a new initiative that builds on the rigorous policy relevant research of Stanford Law School and draws from the multidisciplinary strengths of Stanford University, one of the leading research universities in the world.
The Center aims to become the preeminent academic venue for producing and disseminating research, and developing leaders, to address some of the most fundamental and entrenched racial inequities in American society. The establishment of the Center reflects the recognition that racism in American society has both generated pervasive disparities among groups and also undermined the functioning of American institutions for people of all races. Race is so central to many of the most daunting challenges that confront American society that these problems cannot be tackled without addressing their racial dimensions.
The Center will confront racism and its impacts through bridging the gaps that undermine the ability of universities to address societal problems. These gaps between university researchers on one side and people, communities, and organizations on the other exist with respect to both the development of knowledge and the dissemination and application of knowledge. The Center will collaborate with communities and a wide variety of organizations—from grassroots nonprofits, to government agencies and corporations—to jointly identify societal problems and then to develop research programs that address them. The research findings and policy recommendations of the Center will be widely disseminated and communicated in ways and forms that empower individuals and organizations outside of academia to undermine racism and its myriad effects. The ultimate goal is to leverage the intellectual capital, research capabilities and stature of Stanford University to address some of the problems that imperil our nation.
Stanford Law School is seeking a dynamic leader to guide this timely new initiative. The Executive Director will have the autonomy and responsibility to further develop the vision for the Center and to guide it to maturity. The right person for this position will be someone committed to transforming society with the imagination to dream big and the persistence and strategic skills to bring those plans to fruition.
