The Bloomington Faculty Council (BFC) is an elected, policy-making body responsible for exercising faculty authority on the Bloomington campus. In the past several years, the BFC has increasingly dealt with issues going to the heart of our lives as faculty and the direction of the University. These have included improving the status of non-tenure track faculty, setting sustainability goals for the campus, and examining the criteria for promotion and tenure. There are many ways to get involved with shared governance: volunteer for a committee, stay informed about the issues before the Council, or nominate yourself or a colleague to serve.
Statement in support of IU's decision to require Covid-19 vaccinations
We, the members of the Bloomington Faculty Council Executive Committee, acting on behalf of the Faculty Council, fully support Indiana University's decision to require vaccination for Covid-19. We agree that this is the safest and most effective way to allow the University to fully return to an in-person residential campus and thus give students the full experience that they expect of Indiana University.
