Senate Elections April 7–18

Four at-large and one University Faculty Senate position will become vacant on August 25. A call for nominations and information about candidates’ statements can be found on the Senate Web site. Elections will begin on Monday, April 7, and continue through Friday, April 18. All individuals who received a recent letter regarding nominations for the College Senate elections are on a voting list of one of the units recognized by the College Senate and are eligible to vote in the upcoming elections. The electronic voting booth is also accessible through the College Senate Web site.

One day remains for nominations for the College Senate. These nominations close at the end of the day on Friday, April 4. Faculty members, faculty librarians, and professional and support staff whose total service in the College Senate would not exceed six consecutive years by the end of this term (September 2008–August 2011) are eligible to run for office. Nominees are asked to provide a short statement about their interest in serving as an at-large or University Faculty senator and post their statements on the Senate electronic voting site. Details are provided on the Senate Web site.

Individuals running for a senator position in another election may not also run for at-large senator or University Faculty senator while the other election is being conducted. If the other election concludes during the period when nominations for at-large or University Faculty senator are still being accepted, eligible individuals may self-nominate for either position. If you are interested in being a candidate or have questions about your voting status, please contact Vince Masci, (716) 878-5139. We look forward to your participation in the vital process of campus governance.
