Faculty Council


2005-2006 Faculty Elections

Faculty Senate Elections

The Faculty Senate will be a representative body of the University faculty elected by the respective Schools. The number of representatives that each School may elect will be based on their proportionate number of tenure-track faculty appointments, which will be reviewed at least every five years by the Faculty Senate as a whole. Among the representatives elected "at any rank" from the various Schools, no more than one person may serve from any single department. Senators elected as assistant professors who then receive tenure will serve out their full three-year term. A person cannot run for more than one position concurrently.

Faculty Senate Election Schedule:

  • 3/29 Nominating Petitions available to Faculty Members (petitions available in Dean's Office, Faculty Council's Office and through Faculty Council web site).
