Welcome from the Chairperson
On behalf of the Full-Time Continuing Contract Faculty Senators Council (C-FSC), the primary representative body of the Full-Time Continuing Contract Faculty at NYU, I’d like to welcome you to our website. The C-FSC, composed of 29 Senators and 42 Alternate Senators from across the University, is part of the University Senate, which also comprises the Deans Council, the Tenured/Tenure-Track Faculty Senators Council (T-FSC), the Administrative Management Council (AMC), the Student Senators Council (SSC), and the University’s leadership; collectively, we serve as the “deliberative body for the discussion of University-wide policies and proposed changes in University practices and structure.”
If that sounds wide-ranging…it is. CFSC representatives work on everything from Academic Affairs to Zoom Policies, from Benefits to Blueprints, from Prizes to Grievances. We strive – through internal council committees, University-wide committees, and ad-hoc committees – to represent the interests of contract faculty and to fight for what we believe is in the best interests of the University as a whole. In short, we cover a lot of ground.
We try our best to communicate all that to you through regular email updates, but our minutes, recommendations, and current issues are also off to the left. If you have concerns about a policy that affects your experience at NYU, we’d love to hear about it. Your school’s Senators and Alternates are also excellent places to start if you ever have a question about any aspect of your job; NYU is a complex institution, and the CFSC is committed to helping C-Faculty understand the written rules and unwritten precedents that govern our workplace.
Please send any questions or concerns our way at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling us at 212-998-2230.
