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.
Voting will open at 9:00am, Monday 10 June 2019 and will close at 4:00pm Monday 17 June 2019.
The election for the position of Deputy Chair, Academic Senate, is to be conducted in accordance with clauses (28) and (29) of the Governance (Academic Senate) Rule 2018, as follows:
(28)“If there are two or more nominations for elections for election of the Chair or Deputy Chair, the returning officer will conduct a poll of members of the Academic Senate by secret ballot. Each member of the Academic Senate is entitled to cast a single vote of one of the candidates only. The candidate who has received more votes than any other will be declared elected.”
(29)“If two or more candidates receive an equal number of votes, the returning officer will conduct a further poll of members of the Academic Senate by secret ballot until one of the candidates has received more votes than any other.”
Academic Senate members are requested to vote for their preferred candidate.
