"As we engage in another academic year, we must seek out and exploit opportunities to better ourselves as faculty, colleagues, and citizens of CU, including how we can be more deliberate about turning what we say is important to us into reality. This is particularly true for Faculty Council (FC), and specifically for our Executive Committee (EC)."
The Faculty Council has nine standing committees, devoted to addressing matters relevant to CU faculty. On this list, you will also find the Faculty Senate Grievance Committee (AKA Privilege & Tenure Committee), which is a committee of the Faculty Senate, not the Faculty Council. Learn more about each committee, and note that some are still seeking new members from each campus.
Ever wonder where to get a headshot, if you can access another campus’s library, or what an APS is? The Faculty Council is excited to help you easily find those answers through the new CU Faculty Guide.

"My learning curve on shared governance has been nearly vertical since that time. We are all parts of a whole that cannot function without each other. To me, that is the essence of shared governance: we the faculty work together, support each other, protect each other, and the result is a common voice that works with the campus leadership to build up the University as a whole."

“When I was looking for Service opportunities, I thought it was essential to be a part of a committee that involved representation for the four CU campuses. I wanted to learn more about the other campuses and share ideas for engagement.”
