The special election process for Chair-Elect of the Faculty Senate has begun. Nominations for Chair-Elect will be accepted through Sunday August 24, 2014.

The elected faculty member will serve as Chair-Elect during September 5, 2014- August 30, 2015 then serve as the Chair of the Faculty Senate from September 1, 2015-August 30, 2016.

During his/her service as Chair (9/1/2015-8/30/2016), the Office of the Provost will provide a $10,000 subsidy to the elected faculty member's department to allow the department to free up some of his/her time for Senate matters.

Faculty may nominate themselves or another faculty member by completing the nomination form. Nominees must function primarily as faculty and may not hold an administrative position at or above level of Dean. This includes any position with "Dean" in the title (e.g., Assistant Dean, Associate Dean). Job descriptions for both Chair-Elect and Chair are available on the Position Descriptions page of the Senate website.

Voting will occur August 27- September 3.

Any questions can be addressed to the Senate Secretary, Pat Higginbottom, at
