Welcome to the Boulder Faculty Assembly

"Building Proactive Engagement"

A successful, effective, and supportive campus community requires faculty, staff and administration engagement. The BFA is proactively building engagement by putting in place initiatives that provide every member of the faculty with the opportunity to have their voice heard and participate in building the CU community.

Participate in the BFA!!

Topics of current interest and discussion:

  • Regent Laws and Policies Review - During Academic Year 17-18 the BFA and other campus faculty councils are reviewing Article 5 and Policy 5.a. For more information on the process, please see this memo from Michael Lightner, Vice President for Academic Affairs, CU System. The following BFA Standing Committees are focusing on these items: Academic Affairs Committee, Faculty Affairs Committee, and the Instructor-Track Faculty Affairs Committee. If you'd like to attend one of their meetings, please contact the Chair of these committees. If you have questions you can also contact the BFA office at: 303-492-6271 or bfa@colorado.edu, or your BFA departmental representative.
