Benefits of Membership

 Charitable Giving to Student Success - The Faculty Association provides an opportunity to directly and immediately help Maricopa students in need through the Maricopa Colleges Faculty Foundation.


Shared GovernanceThe Faculty Association actively promotes shared governance and faculty leadership participates in formulating policies, procedures, and allocating resources at the college and district levels.


Academic Freedom and Professional Standards - Academic freedom is under relentless attack by special interest groups, judicial decisions, and legislative initiatives.  The Faculty Association maintains constant vigilance on these and related matters.  It also offers educational workshops on shared governance, academic freedom, peer review, and other professional values and standards.


Meet and Confer - The Meet and Confer Team works tirelessly to negotiate with the Governing Board to improve salary, benefits, and working conditions for all Residential Faculty. Faculty working conditions are student learning conditions.  Only Faculty Association members are eligible to vote on proposed changes to the RFP.


Meet and Confer Voting - While all Residential faculty benefit from the RFP, only Faculty Association Members are allowed to vote to ratify the annual M&C ballot on changes to the RFP. Make sure your voice counts!


Legal Assistance - The Faculty Association retains the services of Mike Napier of the Law Offices of Napier, Coury & Baillie, PC to help protect the employment rights of members.  Mike has been with the FA for over 35 years and knows us and our contract better than anyone.  Click here for a request form.


Grievance / Controversy Representation - The Faculty Association supports faculty involved in grievance and resolution of controversy processes.





Political Action - FacPAC is the only political action committee in Arizona composed of higher education faculty.  Through voluntary contributions to the Faculty PAC, in recent years we have made a decisive difference in electing governing board members and legislators who support students and understand the faculty’s role in achieving student success.


Lobbying - The Faculty Association retains Mike Bielecki of the law firm of Lewis & Roca, LLP to advocate for the interests of our members in legislative, governmental, and other fora. Mike has been essential to our efforts in fighting the Guns on Campus legislation.
