University launches child-care program for faculty

In 2007, a survey by the Faculty Development & Diversity Office showed that almost a third of Stanford faculty missed five or more days of work annually to take care of an ill child, causing a potential loss in productivity. To alleviate this problem, the University recently launched a program that aims to meet the child-care needs of Stanford faculty, funded through a partnership between the provost and the School of Medicine.
