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.

2023 Faculty Council Harry Rosenberg Distinguished Service Award

Sue Davis Pendell, a Communication Studies faculty member who served as the fourth Faculty Council Chair, created the Faculty Council Harry Rosenberg Distinguished Service Award as an endowment to honor Harry Rosenberg, a Department of History faculty member and the first elected Faculty Council Chair.

Congratulations to Steve Reising, chair of the Committee on Faculty Governance, who is the 2023 recipient of the award. Reising has been involved with Faculty Council in various capacities for over 15 years. He was first elected to Faculty Council in 2007, as well as serving as the Engineering representative to the Committee on University Programs, Executive Committee, and most recently serving on the Committee on Faculty Governance, where he has served for over 10 years. Reising has been the chair of the Committee on Faculty Governance since 2019. He has assisted in processing many important Code changes to the Academic Faculty and Administrative Professional Manual, as well as ensuring that Faculty Council standing committees and Faculty Council have the necessary membership to operate effectively. In recognition of Reising’s distinguished service to Colorado State University’s Faculty Council, Reising will be presented a plaque and an honorarium.
