I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

So you'd like to check the QueryString:
#/.htccess:
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} =sid=faculty
RewriteRule ^faculty/faculty\.php$ /faculty/? [R=301,L]

That works great! thank you.  
I have many more that I need to redirect, and I have not figured out the pattern.

For example:

1. faculty/faculty.php?sid=faculty               to                 faculty/

2. faculty/faculty_core.php?sid=faculty     to              faculty/scientific_cores.html

3. faculty/faculty_laboratories.php?sid=faculty    to               faculty/labs_centers.html

4. faculty/faculty_resources.php?sid=faculty     to     faculty/biology_resources.html


thank you!

Since the filename differs between "input" and "output", you'll need "hard-coded" rules, i.e. they cannot be generic
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} =sid=faculty
RewriteRule ^faculty/faculty\.php$ /faculty/? [R=301,L]
 
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} =sid=faculty
RewriteRule ^faculty/faculty_core\.php$ /faculty/scientific_cores.html? [R=301,L]
 
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} =sid=faculty
RewriteRule ^faculty/faculty_laboratories\.php$ /faculty/labs_centers.html? [R=301,L]
 
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} =sid=faculty
RewriteRule ^faculty/faculty_resources\.php$ /faculty/biology_resources.html? [R=301,L]
