The associate directors are the key individuals called upon to identify campus FACET members who might participate in a FACET major event or service; associate directors know their campus colleagues and can bring more of them into FACET activities.
With representation on the Steering Committee, they also have a voice in policy-making.
- Steering Committee Meetings (Bi-Annual): Usually held before FALCON and either before or after the Retreat. These meetings are vital for the leadership of FACET to address concerns relevant to the future of FACET. Assoicate directors will need to submit a report prior to the meeting.
- Associate Director Only Meeting (Bi-Annual): This is an opportunity to meet with the FACET Director to discuss important issues and to discuss issues with one another. These meetings will be scheduled around the two annual Steering Committee meetings to reduce travel.
Associate directors also foster conversations and campus programs on teaching. Associate directors will work with their campus fiscal officer to create and manage a campus FACET account for the purpose of receiving funds awarded as part of the mini grants.
Regarding program and event dates, associate directors inform the FACET office staff of important dates on each campus for inclusion on the FACET calendar hosted on the FACET website. Dates for selection, campus sponsored events, or other events appropriate, or of interest, to the FACET membership are requested. If you are interested in publicizing your event on the FACET website, please let your associate director(s) know. All events funded by a Programming Mini Grant should be confirmed with the FACET office for publication on the FACET calendar.
Associate directors are also asked to bring campus concerns and special program resources to the attention of the statewide program office and Steering Committee. The flow of relevant information is vital to cross campus communication and collaboration. Examples of programs dates the FACET office should know about include teaching programs like the Moore Symposium and visiting lecturer presentations that FACET members from other campuses would be interested in attending.
