Resident Faculty Organization

Assembly and Governance

The Resident Faculty Organization (RFO) is a campus governing body for all resident faculty members.
Mission

The mission of the Resident Faculty Organization (RFO) is four-fold:

  1. to provide formal participation and representation of the resident faculty in the conduct of the overall academic mission of WSU Tri-Cities,
  2. to review, assist, and advise the Chancellor and Vice Chancellors in achieving and maintaining academic excellence,
  3. to elect the WSU Tri-Cities Faculty Senator, and
  4. to designate the campus Faculty Senator as an RFO Representative to the WSU Tri-Cities Academic Council.

All resident tenured, tenure-track, and clinical faculty with at least half-time appointments on the WSU Tri-Cities campus are automatically members of the RFO, unless they voluntarily choose to decline such membership in writing.
