- The Faculty Council was established in 1915 and is the major policy making
body for academic affairs at Colorado State University. A representative body
of elected academic faculty members and ex officio members, the Faculty Council acts as the representative body
for the academic faculty and performs those duties delegated to the academic faculty
by acts of the legislature. Shared governance is an instrument by which the
collective intelligence of the institution through direct and representative
participation can do effective work in establishing policies which result in:
- Curricula suited to the needs of the state as well as to regional, national, and international concerns.
- The best possible teaching, research, and extension/outreach activities.
- Conditions in which both faculty members and students can learn and develop according to their individual interests and aptitudes.
