Faculty & Staff


Faculty & Staff

CFS has approximately 250 faculty and staff involved in teaching, research and service activities. CFS is somewhat distinctive from traditional academic departments at USF due to its size, involvement in training and dissemination activities, inclusion of several large centers and consortia, and a diverse constituent base that includes local, state, and federal agencies; service providers, consumers, and legislators and other policy makers.

CFS Governance

CFS has assembled a Governance Council to assist the Chair in reviewing key policies and decisions affecting the Department, including budgetary issues and long-term strategic planning.

CFS Committees

Committees are formed as deemed necessary by the Department Chair in consultation with the Leadership Team and CFS Governance Council. Some committees will consist of both CFS staff and faculty members, while others, such as Tenure and Promotion Committees, will consist solely of faculty members.
