Re-Envisioning Colorado State

During his Fall Address, President Frank launched an initiative to re-envision CSU, and charged the three employee councils (Faculty Council, Administrative Professional Council and Classified Personnel Council) with moving this initiative forward. Faculty Council embraces this call-to-action and will strategically plan for a future of resilient shared governance, teaching and learning in a new technological era, scholarship and discovery in an age of big data and big questions, and a culture of community, inclusivity and work-life balance.


Building for Success

CSU is in the middle of a $700 million building boom, with major construction projects at the south end of campus. This video shows the transformations that are occurring, and looks at how CSU is planning for the future.

Celebrating 100 years of shared governance

The Faculty Council, established in 1915, is the major policy making body for academic affairs at Colorado State University. A representative body of elected academic faculty members and ex officio members, the Faculty Council acts as the representative body for the academic faculty and establishes policies which result in:

  • Curricula suited to the needs of the state as well as to regional, national, and international concerns.
  • The best possible teaching, research, and extension/outreach activities.
  • Conditions in which both faculty members and students can learn and develop according to their individual interests and aptitudes.
