About the FAC

The Faculty Advisory Committee functions in three areas to support the faculty of the University.  As articulated in the University Statutes, the FAC:

  • Provides for the orderly voicing of suggestions for the good of the University;
  • Affords added recourse for the consideration of grievances;
  • Furnishes a channel for direct and concerted communication between the faculty and the administrative officers of the University, its colleges, schools, institutes, divisions and other administrative units.

In performing these functions, the FAC investigates complaints, holds consultations with individuals and, when necessary, provides the results of these investigations to the University Administration.  All matters are held in complete confidence except as the person bringing the grievance and the FAC agree to the contrary.

Contact the Chair, Carol Tilley at ctilley@illinois.edu, with questions and concerns.
