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

I’m on the faculty at school X

Or

I’m in the faculty at school X

I see the phrase used both ways. (By PHD’s)
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 I’m on the writing club.

Thanks,
Dowser

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.
