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.
