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.
