    which phrase is correct:

    Hi,
    I have a little question about which phrase is correct:

    Im on the faculty at school X

    Or

    Im in the faculty at school X

    I see the phrase used both ways. (By PHDs)
    What I can figure out is the faculty is a group of people and a person is IN a Group of people and not on a group of people.

    Example: I am in the writing club, not Im on the writing club.

    Thanks,
    Dowser

    Re: which phrase is correct:

    In. But when referring to being on (the committee of) the faculty, then 'on'.
    You may be a member in a chess club and at the same time a controller on chess matches.
