NTID Faculty Congress (NFC)

NTID Faculty Congress (NFC) operates in agreement with RIT's Charter of Academic Governance just like RIT's Academic Senate.

NFC follows a similar representative model as Academic Senate and consists of 11 representatives (membership) from all discipline units of NTID.

Like Academic Senate, NFC will work with administration to vet, create, and modify policy as it pertains to faculty affairs. (RIT-wide policy library; NTID policy library)

NFC runs elections for the following bodies/committees:

  1. NTID Faculty Congress (Executive committee)
  2. RIT Academic Senate (AS)
  3. Faculty Evaluation and Development (FEAD) grants committee
  4. Eisenhart Awards committee 
  5. Academic Affairs (AS standing committee)
  6. Academic Support and Student Affairs committee (AS standing committee)
  7. Long Range Planning and Environment Committee (AS standing committee)
  8. Resource Allocation and Budget Committee (AS standing commitee)
  9. Research and Scholarship Committee
