Ohio Faculty Council Mission Statement
The Ohio Faculty Council (OFC) represents the faculty of Ohio's 14 public universities. It exists to provide a forum for discussion among faculty at member institutions and to advocate for the values of higher education: the teaching, creation, preservation, and application of knowledge for the good of both individual students and the public. Because of these values, it is committed to shared governance at universities so that the expertise of faculty may help shape academic priorities and policies at each institution, and endorses the principles of academic freedom and responsibility contained in the 1940 AAUP "Statement of Principles on Academic Freedom and Tenure."
About the Ohio Faculty Council
