Be in the know
Being aware and informed on the issues under consideration by the Council and its committees is one of the most important ways to participate in shared governance.
Many opinions I presented in the BFC meetings were concerns coming from my constituents. It is so important to follow/attend every BFC meeting since your representatives will hear your position regarding an agenda item and present it on the floor.Israel F. Herrera, Spanish & Portuguese
BFC meeting agendas are circulated to the entire Bloomington faculty and posted on our website approximately one week in advance. Be sure to watch your inbox for these notices and contact the BFC office if you are not receiving these emails.
Attending a meeting is one of the best ways to stay informed on the topics the Council is considering. Meetings are open to the public, but be sure to familiarize yourself with the procedures for addressing the Council.
If you can't attend in person, meetings are always audio recorded and verbatim transcripts are posted within two weeks after the meeting. Contact the BFC office for more information.
