Faculty Fund for Library Excellence

Faculty councils serve as deliberative and advisory bodies for all matters of University policy, and are primary forums for faculty-administrative interaction in determining that policy. Faculty Code, Sec 42-33.

FCUL shall be responsible for all matters of policy relating to libraries such as, but not limited to, collection development; services to students, faculty, and others; the system of libraries, including branch libraries; space needs; and budgetary requirements. Faculty Code, Sec 42-41.

During winter quarter 2011, the Faculty Council on University Libraries established the Faculty Fund for Library Excellence (FFLE). The FFLE is a university gift fund available for current and emeritus faculty donors to support the University Libraries’ collections. Through the FFLE collections will be retained and acquired and unique materials will be preserved and digitized – supporting UW faculty efforts that benefit the people of Washington State and the world. On March 10, 2011 the Faculty Senate approved the council’s resolution to establish the FFLE.

Donations can be made to the FFLE through the UW Foundation.
