Faculty Governance & Elections
Winter 2016 Elections are coming up! Nominate!
Just getting started in College service? Why not nominate yourself for a replacement term to learn the ropes and build your experience. These shorter terms are an ideal way to get a feel for how governance or a given committee functions. Serving in this manner also builds name recognition so in the future it becomes easier to get elected to other committees.
Building your service resume for tenure or promotion? Looking to make an even greater contribution? Try for the full term positions on committees that meet regularly. You can help to build the environment that you want to see at Grand Valley.
You may self-nominate or nominate others. Be sure to talk with those faculty before nominating them since we must receive their approval before they can be placed on the ballot. If you are nominated you must confirm the nomination to be placed on the ballot.
If you are curious about what all is involved with each committee, the following link will take you to a description of their functions. (http://www.gvsu.edu/clas/clas-committees-305.htm).
Nominations for all positions will open at 3pm Monday January 18th and remain open until 8pm on Monday February 1st.
