Faculty Association of Community & Technical Colleges (FACTC)


The Network for Washington State Two-Year College Faculty

Faculty at community and technical colleges need to have an active voice in the ongoing discussions of critical instructional issues related to two-year colleges. FACTC is a statewide faculty network charged with reflecting that voice to and with a wide range of system and state educational and policy groups. We urge you to get involved and make your voice be heard! Visit the FACTC website for more information.

FACTC Goals

  • Addressing instructional issues that cross campus boundaries, aiming to improve teaching and learning in Washington's two-year colleges through systemwide sharing and collaborative problem-solving.
  • Enhancing communication among colleges and state organizations dealing with issues relevant to community and technical college faculty.
  • Monitoring and reporting on the activities of key decision-making and policy organizations in Washington state, including the State Board for Community & Technical Colleges (SBCTC), Washington Student Achievement Council (WSAC), and the Washington State Legislature.
  • Improving the flow of information between faculty and various key two-year college system groups, including the presidents (WACTC), the trustees (TACTC), and the chief academic officers (Instruction Commission).

Membership

Each college in the Washington two-year college system is entitled to representation on FACTC, and each college defines its own process for selecting and replacing its representative. The overall strength and system influence of FACTC depends critically on the active participation of ALL colleges in the system as well as on campus faculty effectively utilizing their FACTC representatives to stay current with key instructional issues facing Washington higher education.

Check the FACTC website for a list of current representatives, and let your representative know you’re interested in supporting the organization and staying informed. If there’s no current representative, we encourage you to get involved; check with your local faculty association or chief academic officer for more information on the selection process on your campus.
