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.
Now is your chance to get involved
There are currently two exciting ways to get involved with the Bloomington Faculty Council. The BFC is now accepting self-nominations for indviduals interest in running for a seat on the Council. In addition, we are looking for volunteers for committees during the 2021-2022 academic year.
Now Accepting Nominations
Nominations for next year's Bloomington Faculty Council are underway and will be open through Friday, April 16, 2021. Serving on the Council is a great way to get to know and engage with colleagues and administrators from across the campus.
Volunteer for a committee
Much of the work of the Council occurs in its committees. Committee members have the opportunity to shape proposals that will be considered by the full Council on a wide range of issues. Volunteer for a committee and be a part of shared governance today.
