The faculty athletics representative is a member of the
full-time faculty at an NCAA institution designated to serve as a
liaison to the athletics department as well as a representative of
the institution in conference and NCAA affairs.
While each institution determines the specific role of the FAR at that institution, one of the guiding principles for the role of the FAR is "... to ensure that the academic institution establishes and maintains the appropriate balance between academics and intercollegiate athletics."

The FAR works to support a campus environment where athletics is recognized as a vital component of the educational experience and student-athletes constitute an integral part of the university community.
