Discipline/Department Articulation Councils

Each Discipline/Department Articulation Council - a group of Minnesota State Colleges & Universities faculty members from a single discipline or program area who are appointed through Inter Faculty Organization (IFO) and Minnesota State College Faculty (MSCF) procedures - meet as needed to help build the essential base of knowledge, understanding, trust, and mutual respect that supports equitable treatment of transfer students. These councils provide part of the structure for continuing faculty communication across system and institutional boundaries. The council oversight ensures appropriate, high-quality education for students who transfer within the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system.
