Faculty Advisory Committee (FAC) | Kent State University

Faculty Advisory Committee (FAC)

This elected School advisory committee represents full‐time School members in School governance. The Faculty Advisory Committee (hereinafter "FAC") is structured and operates as described in the applicable Collective Bargaining Agreement.

The FAC is convened and chaired at least once per term by the Director who, in consultation with the FAC, sets the agenda for its meetings. FAC members may request that items be added to the agenda. Additional meetings of the FAC may be called by the Director, as needed. The Director is an ex‐officio nonvoting member of the FAC. If at any time at least one‐half of the members of the FAC request a meeting, such a meeting will be held.

Tenure and Non-Tenure Track Faculty (hereinafter "Faculty") members of each program elect members to the FAC. The FAC shall consist of two (2) Faculty members from each program area. FAC terms are for two (2) years. Elections are conducted in the Spring Semester and the FAC members assume office at the beginning of the Fall Semester. To the greatest extent possible, these elections will be staggered so that only one FAC member (per program area) is elected each year.  Each School FAC elects three, preferably tenured FAC members, to serve two-year terms on the College Advisory Council. These elections will be staggered so that at least one CAC member is elected each academic year.
