Welcome to Faculty Council

Who We Are

Faculty Council is the representative body for the academic faculty in shared governance at CSU.  The Faculty Council, subject to statutes of the State and regulations and policies of the Board of Governors (BOG), has jurisdiction over the general educational policies of the University and passes all rules and regulations necessary to University government.  Faculty Council membership consists of one elected representative from each academic department and the Libraries, and a proportionate representation from each college as voting members.  Upper-level administrators are ex officio non-voting members.

Faculty Council Executive Committee’s Pledge of Student Support

On behalf of the Faculty Council Executive Committee, we share the following message of support to all of our ASSET students and international students from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Syria, Sudan, and Yemen:

The Faculty Council Executive Committee affirms Colorado State University’s commitment to fostering an environment that is inclusive and respectful of diversity in all its forms — in our classrooms, our offices, on campus, and beyond.

To that end, the Faculty Council Executive Committee pledges to support our students who attend Colorado State University under DACA and Colorado’s ASSET law.  We are also in full support of students whose visa status may impede their ability to pursue their education.

We commend President Tony Frank’s efforts to extend educational opportunities to all.  We support the administration in pursuing all reasonable, legal measures that strengthen CSU’s commitment to providing academic opportunities to these, and all, students.
