I am confused by how "faculty" is used in terms of conference/congress organization.
For example, on this website you see the international and US faculty of an educational meeting. I understand that these people are the speakers, the key figures of the conference. But no dictionaries I have consulted provide a definition like that. Moreover, they never say that "faculty" is somehow related to conferences. Can you explain what exactly the word means in this context?
Also, I have come across the following sentence:
We are happy to invite you as Guest Faculty. (which means the person is invited as a speaker of a conference)
Does the sentence make sense to you? Perhaps, they could invite someone as a member of Faculty, or just a speaker...
