What is MFAD?

The Minority Faculty/Staff Applicant Database (MFAD) is designed to send your job posting to over 3.2 million persons with the click of a button. The Academic Network website receives over 250,000 impressions per month, including nearly 73,000 current members of higher education.

Unlimited Job Posting Option

We conduct "scrapes" of your HR website every two weeks to ensure your job opportunities are up-to-date and placed under your MFAD heading (by region). That is 52 updates per year! Thus, you never have to go through the extensive trouble of telling us which postings have been filled or need updating. The cost of the unlimited posting option is $1,500 for the entire year.
