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.

2021 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 Sue Doe, Chair of Faculty Council, who is the 2021 recipient of the award.  Doe has been a member of Faculty Council since 2013, serving in multiple roles, including Vice Chair for three years. Doe was recently re-elected to a second term as Faculty Council chair for 2021-2022. Under Doe’s leadership, we’ve seen substantive and important changes to the Faculty Manual, held open and transparent discussions with university leadership and learned more about our faculty colleagues’ work.  In recognition of her distinguished service to Colorado State University’s Faculty Council, Doe will be presented a plaque and an honorarium.
