2007 Annual Report
Faculty Advisory Council
Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education
Purpose. The purpose of the Faculty Advisory Council is to communicate to the Chancellor and the State Regents the views and interests of all Oklahoma college and university faculty on those issues that relate to the constitutional and statutory responsibilities of the State Regents. In representing faculty, the Faculty Advisory Council shall attempt to accurately represent the positions of faculty and develop the best proposals and recommendations to the State Regents.
Creation. Seven representatives were nominated on June 26, 1990, by a statewide assembly of faculty convened by the Chancellor. The group held its first meeting on October 6, 1990, and bylaws drafted by the first Faculty Advisory Committee were approved by the State Regents on December 17, 1990. In June of 2002, the State Regents approved the Faculty Advisory Committee’s name change to the Faculty Advisory Council. FAC members serve two-year terms. Two members represent the research tier (one from OU and one from OSU); two represent the regional tier; two represent the community colleges; and one represents the independent institutions.
