Senate Vacancies: Call for Nominations March 22–April 5, 2010

From the Chair of the College Senate
One University Faculty senator, one alternate faculty senator, and three at-large College Senate positions will become vacant on August 23. The University Faculty senator is a senator within both the Buffalo State College Senate and the SUNY University Faculty Senate. The alternate attends the SUNY University Faculty Senate meetings only when one of the two University Faculty senators is absent.

A call for nominations and information about candidates' statements can be found at www.buffalostate.edu/collegesenate. The call for nominations begins Monday, March 22, and continues through 5:00 p.m. Monday, April 5. Elections will begin on Monday, April 12, and continue through Friday, April 16.

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 2010–August 2013) are eligible to run for each office. Nominees are asked to provide a short statement about their interest, which will 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 Faculty senator position 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, please contact Vince Masci at 878-5139 or collegesenate@buffalostate.edu. We look forward to your participation in the vital process of campus governance.
