walking to work today i see this ad for grand valley state university on the side of a city bus. it has a quote from a supposed student......"the faculty here are incredible."



I'm no English scholar so forgive me if I'm wrong. However, I'm not so sure there's anything wrong with that statement.


Couldn't that be a situation where faculty used in that instance can either be singular implying the group of teachers as a whole or plural referring to all the faculty but not as a whole. If this is true, than both is or are could be used.


Certainly there is somebody more qualified than I am to clarify this.
