The IFC is charged to 1) elect faculty members to serve on the Commission, 2) choose the Interim Faculty Liaison to the Board of Governors, and 3) serve as a sounding board for the Commission. Members of the IFC serve as a conduit to their respective campus faculty for the purposes of socializing the discussions around shared governance. In order to constitute the IFC, full-time and adjunct faculty members for each university were invited to participate in an election for a single faculty representative from the university to serve on the IFC. Participation was open to all members of the faculty. Any full-time or adjunct faculty member was able to declare their candidacy.
The IFC is chaired by the Interim Faculty Liaison (once elected), who may convene the Council from time-to-time to ensure consistent two-way communication, obtain insights and feedback on State System matters, or to provide the faculty members of the Commission a forum for engagement with the IFC members.
