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.

2019 Faculty Council Harry Rosenberg Distinguished Service Award

Congratulations to David Greene, Associate Professor, College of Health and Human Sciences.  In recognition of his distinguished service to Colorado State University’s Faculty Council, Greene was presented a plaque and an honorarium during the 2019 Spring Faculty Council meeting.

Greene has served the University and its Faculty in various Faculty Council roles, including serving on Faculty Council as the department representative from 1999-2008 and 2012-2014; Executive Committee representative 2007-2008; and also serving roles on the University Discipline Panel 2008-2014, Committee on Responsibilities and Standing of Academic Faculty 2008-2014 (serving as Chair 2009-2014);  and the Committee on Non-Tenure Track Faculty 2014-2017.

During his service on Faculty Council, Greene influenced innumerable policies–including leave policies, smoking policies, grievance policies, academic integrity, tuition scholarships, promotions, just to name a few.   In his work, Greene always thought about the affects policies would have on every member of the CSU community, trying to serve those potentially left out or without voices.  Greene has always been very passionate and thoughtful about his work, and always strived to get things right.  His work on the Academic Faculty and Administrative Professional Manual provided better protections and more thoughtful policies for all of us–faculty and students.
