The Faculty Healthcare Council (FHC) functions as the voice of the faculty regarding the planning, design, and implementation of healthcare and healthcare benefit programs offered by the administration. 

There are nine voting members of the FHC with ex-officio members (voice only) from the Office of Planning and Budgets and the Faculty Emeriti Association. Council members are appointed by the Steering Committee from a slate of nominees established by the University Committee on Academic Governance. Nominees must have demonstrated experience in any of the following areas: human resources management, health care administration, health care benefit plan design or health care professions and reflect the diversity of the faculty. 

Council members are appointed for three consecutive two-year terms to ensure continuity and stability of FHC. 

The FHC reports jointly to the Steering Committee and the University Committee on Faculty Affairs.
