UMUC Faculty Advisory Council

About the Faculty Advisory Council

UMUC's system of faculty governance was formed, pursuant to Maryland Board of Regents by laws, to provide for informed participation and collaboration in the affairs of the university by faculty. The Faculty Advisory Council (FAC) represents all faculty, including librarians, in UMUC Adelphi, UMUC–Asia and UMUC–Europe. The FAC consists of 18 elected members and one ex officio, non-voting member appointed by the Provost.
