On May 5, 1994, the exempt, administrative employees of the Colorado School of Mines organized themselves as the Mines Administrative Faculty and established the Mines Administrative Faculty Council (AFC). The AFC was organized to serve as the representative body of the Administrative Faculty in the specific areas delineated in the Bylaws and to actively participate in such policy matters of Mines which may affect or be of interest to the Administrative Faculty.
The Mines Administrative Faculty Council Articles of Organization and Bylaws are currently being updated. Check back soon for our newest versions!
What does AFC do?
- Advocates for administrative faculty and ensures timely communications.
- Recognizes the efforts and achievements of administrative faculty.
- Facilitates and fosters professional relationships across campus and build a stronger Mines community through professional and social programming.
- Acts as a liaison to the Faculty Senate, Association of Classified Employees (ACE) and other such employee representative groups that gain official Mines recognition.
