Resources for Faculty

Welcome to HumBio's For Faculty landing page. From here, you can find information about many of HumBio's policies.

HumBio uses SFACT, an online course of study planning tool, for our students to communicate with Faculty Advisors. Faculty Advisors can sign on using Stanford single sign on to SFACT.


Expectations for HumBio Advisors

  • Meet with your advisee(s), once a year at minimum. Quarterly is recommended to get to know them. You will likely be asked to write letters of recommendations or award nominations. 
  • Engage with the Sophomores who are looking for an advisor through faculty lunches, meet-n-greets, and/or office hours. 
  • Use SFACT to review advisee's course of study and sign on as their major advisor. The Notes tool is optional. 
  • You are not expected to know the HumBio major requirements or course offerings. The basics are found in the quick guide.
