Now Accepting Applications for the IFO Equity Caucus Coordinator Position

As a result of this spring’s IFO Delegate Assembly resolution and subsequent change to the IFO Operating Procedures, three equity caucuses (faculty of color, LGBTQ+ faculty and women faculty) will be organized this coming academic year on each university campus. Each equity caucus will assemble and select a representative to their Faculty Association’s local governing body as well as a representative to their respective statewide IFO equity committee. Based on the principle of self-determination, these caucuses will establish their own internal processes and identify issues of concern to their constituency.
The IFO Board authorized for 2018-2019 academic year 3 credits release time per semester for a faculty member to serve as Equity Caucus Coordinator to facilitate the creation and development of the campus-based equity caucuses. 
Selection of the Equity Caucus Coordinator, as well as plans for implementation of the campus-based equity caucuses, will occur in a joint meeting of the three statewide equity caucuses, at the IFO office in Saint Paul on June 26, 2018 (10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.). All faculty who identify as faculty of color, LGBTQ+ faculty or women faculty are welcome to attend.
