Faculty Advisory Council

FAC representatives will attend regularly scheduled meetings with YSM administration during the academic year. They will also be responsible for engaging with members of their departments to learn about concerns and issues, and to relay information from the FAC. Listed below are the current FAC members, by department or organization. Listed below each faculty members name is their grouping for the department, if applicable.
