Faculty Policy Council
Role of the Faculty Policy Council
The Faculty Policy Council (FPC) is the policy-making authority for the college engaged in faculty governance through a unified faculty voice on matters that concern more than one department. The FPC shall report its decisions to the Dean and to the faculty at large. Implementation of adopted policies is the responsibility of the Dean, in consultation with the council. The FPC may, at its discretion, refer specific policy decisions to the eligible faculty for a vote by anonymous ballot.
Members of the FPC work in partnership with the Dean, while representing the perspectives of faculty at all academic ranks, both tenured and non-tenured. All members of the College Faculty are eligible for election to the FPC. However, instructors and assistant professors must have three years of full-time service at USF before they are eligible to serve on the FPC. Faculty who hold the rank of Professor are particularly encouraged to serve. In the spirit of collegiality and mutual respect, council members will deliberately seek the counsel of faculty members at all ranks. The membership of the FPC shall include three faculty representatives elected from each department. The faculty welcomes non-voting membership of the Dean and the Dean’s designees, and the immediate past Council Chair shall serve as a non-voting ex officio member of the Council.
