Senate Vacancies: Call for Nominations March 16–30

From the Chair of the College Senate and the Chair of the Bylaws and Elections Committee
Three at-large Senate positions will become vacant on August 25. A call for nominations and information about candidates’ statements can be found on the College Senate Web site. The call for nominations began on Monday, March 16 (announced in the Daily), and continues through Monday, March 30. Elections begin Thursday, April 2, and continue through Thursday, April 16.

Faculty members, faculty librarians, and professional and support staff who are eligible to vote in college elections and whose total service in the College Senate would not exceed six consecutive years by the end of this term (September 2009–August 2012) are eligible to run for office. Nominees are asked to provide a short statement about their interest to be posted on the Senate electronic voting site.

Individuals running for a senator position in another election may not also run for an at-large senator or university senator position while the other election is being conducted. If the other election concludes during the period when nominations for at-large or university senator are still being accepted, eligible individuals may self-nominate for either position.

If you are interested in being a candidate, please contact Vince Masci, 878-5139. We look forward to your participation in the vital process of campus governance.
