The Michigan State University Council of Faculty Affairs Deans (COFAD) provides a cross-campus forum for Assistant and Associate Deans and others working in the areas of academic human resources and faculty development to share ideas, develop best practices, receive information, and provide recommendations to the Associate Provost and Associate Vice President for Academic Human Resources. It meets every three weeks during the academic year. COFAD elects its own chairperson or co-chairpersons, who serve as the Council’s main contact(s). Co-chairpersons for AY 18-19 are: Suzanne Lang, College of Agriculture and Natural Resources, and Sonja Fritzsche, College of Arts & Letters.
