    Be aware that "faculty" has other meanings too.

    No doubt that the meaning that SD gave is correct here.

    It can also mean "capacity" or "capability".

    For example:

    "She has the faculty to say the one thing that will cheer up people."

    There are other variations on this same theme. I think if you look up "faculty" in the dictionary you will find 4 or 5 meanings for this word.
