Faculty Advisory Council

The Faculty Advisory Council (FAC) serves to facilitate close consultation between faculty engaged in research and other activities involving the funds administered by the Foundation (who may be expected to use the services of the Foundation) and the Board of Directors on matters of substance related to the performance and administration of sponsored research and other activities.

Members are selected by the University Faculty Senate from faculty demonstrably active in research, as evidenced by the fact that within two years prior to selection they were principal or co-investigators or directors of research of training grants administered by the RF, or were recipients of research grants and/or fellowships financed by non-university sources and deemed by the University Faculty Senate to be an award of nationally recognized importance.
