    “He is a faculty”. Maybe that’s the result of language use shortcuts ( epidemics in American English). It is shorter than “He is a member of our Faculty”.

    Eh, “she’s faculty” is actually shorter, and has the added bonus of making good grammatical sense. “I’m a faculty member” also doesn’t need to be quite as long as the phrasing you chose ;)

    Mark Hopkins on one end of a log?

    I agree that *”he is a faculty” is ungrammatical. “He’s faculty” is fine; it’s an idiom, just like, “Don’t talk about the strike plans in front of Judy; she’s management.” No one would say *”she is a management.”
