The Boulder Faculty Assembly is the representative body for faculty governance on the Boulder campus of the University of Colorado. Representatives are elected from academic units and from faculty at-large. The Boulder Faculty Assembly representatives of academic units (departments, schools and colleges, libraries, museum, and ROTC) are nominated and elected by the full-time faculty senate members of the academic unit they represent. No more than two (2) members of any department, division, or program may serve at any one time as voting members of the Boulder Faculty Assembly. All Boulder campus faculty who are members of the faculty senate are eligible to serve. This includes professors, associate professors, assistant professors, professors emeritus, and full-time instructors after two years in the rank at the University of Colorado, Boulder.

All nominating letters or forms must be signed by one or more members of the Senate, and the nominee must also sign, indicating his or her agreement to accept the position if elected. Faculty members who agree to be nominated by their colleagues should keep in mind that elected members to the Assembly have the responsibility to be present at monthly Boulder Faculty Assembly meetings, which are scheduled to be held during the academic year on the first Thursday of each month from 4:00 to 5:30 p.m.

Following the nominating period, ballots listing candidates for election by academic units and at-large will be prepared and provided to faculty in appropriate units. Ballots must, according to BFA By-laws, be returned to the BFA office in any envelope on which the voting member signs across the seal of the envelope and prints his/her name and the name of his/her academic unit. Ballots that do not meet these requirements shall be declared to be invalid.
