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 governancevolunteer for a committee, stay informed about the issues before the Council, or  nominate yourself or a colleague to serve.

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.
