Welcome from the Chairperson

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the Continuing Contract Faculty Senators Council (C-FSC), I would like to welcome you to the website for the C-FSC, the representative body on the University Senate for full-time NYU faculty not in tenure lines. The University Senate, made up of the University Leadership, the Deans Council, the Tenured Faculty Senators Council (T-FSC), the C-FSC and the Student Senators Council “is the deliberative body for the discussion of University-wide policies and proposed changes in University practices and structure. The Senate sets its agenda with particular concern for academic programs and structure, personnel and budgetary policies, development of facilities and community, professional, and educational relations of the University. The Senate makes any recommendations regarding policies and practices of the University to the President and Chancellor and, through the President and Chancellor, to the Board of Trustees.”

The C-FSC is an active and strong voice in University governance. Our Council members fill seats on standing University committees, Ad-Hoc Senate Committees and Task Forces, and internal C-FSC committees, many of which work in coordinated activity with the T-FSC to review and comment on important University initiatives that affect our constituency, the students and the University as a whole. We are very excited to begin our third year as a Council on the Senate.

Our 29 Senators and 42 Alternate Senators look forward to active participation this academic year in the shared governance process at NYU through the University Senate.

Our membership, committee structure, rules and procedures, recommendations to university policies and minutes of meetings may all be found through this website. We encourage you to familiarize yourselves with the work of the C-FSC and invite you to communicate with us with any questions or concerns by emailing us at or by calling us at 212-998-2230.

Thank you!
