All members of Academic Senate and its committees are encouraged to bring their own experience and expertise – as well as the views of the particular group or electorate that they represent, such as the School or Faculty. Nevertheless, as a member of a Senate committee, all members’ decision-making and inputs into the committee must reflect the interests of the University as a whole.
Members’ responsibilities are to be aware of the committee’s purpose and functions, to be ethical and diligent, and to contribute actively and critically to the committee’s discussions and work. Importantly, members should also be the communication point between the committee and the member's School, Faculty, Division or other area regarding the discussions, decisions, policies and other developments in the committee. All this applies as much to Faculty and School committees as it does to University committees and Academic Senate itself.
All candidates were invited to provide a statement supporting their nomination. Where this has been provided, the statement is available to view next to the candidate’s name on the relevant voting page.
Nominations are invited for the election of one member of the professoriate, by the professoriate members of the University, to the Academic Senate to fill the casual vacancy caused by the resignation of Professor Max Finlayson.
Nominations are open until 5:00pm, Monday 12 August 2019.
