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.


Fellow Members of the Colorado State University Community,

The Executive Committee of the CSU Faculty Council reaches out to affirm our support for the rights of faculty, staff, and students to engage in peaceful, non-violent protest.

The CSU Faculty Council emphasizes the importance of the CSU Principles of Community. These principles enable the “collaborative and vibrant community” that is the “foundation for learning, critical inquiry, and discovery” that happens at CSU. These Principles of Community are inclusive in nature and are supportive of the principles of free speech, the right to peaceful assembly, and the importance of respectful dialogue.

We continue to champion non-violent methods for maintaining safety during peaceful protests or demonstrations. Furthermore, we invite faculty, staff, students and other members of our community to practice our Principles of Community in our interactions and to show respect as we engage in dialogue, especially when we disagree.

We remain committed to fostering a campus environment that supports non-violent protests, and advocate that any law enforcement involved upholds these standards.
