History

The Committee on the Responsibilities and Standing of the Academic Faculty (CORSAF) is a standing committee of Colorado State University's Faculty Council. The committee was established in October 1978 under the Code of Colorado State University, Section C.2.1.9.5. With the creation of CORSAF, Faculty Council became exclusively repsonsible for tenure policy. CORSAF held its first meeting on May 8, 1979, with Dr. Harry Rosenberg as its Chair.

CORSAF is charged with recommending policies defining the general responsibilities of faculty to the University, college, and department; policies related to the standing of the faculty including selection, appointment, evaluation, merit incentives, rank and promotion, tenure, termination of employment, leaves, and academic freedom; and procedures related to faculty grievances. Membership consists of one faculty member from each college and the Libraries.
