Regional Faculty Caucus

The establishment of a Regional Faculty Caucus (RFC) was a key recommendation of the Blueprint for Student Attainment.  The faculty members and administrators who developed the Blueprint anticipated the need for a policy-making body for regional collaborations.  The RFC addresses academic issues that arise from Blueprint implementation activities.  Comprised of the faculty organization leaders on the six regional campuses of IU, it meets at least four times each year.
