TT Faculty Governance & Elections

TT Election Winter 2022

It is time once again for us to hold elections for the various faculty governance committees, both at the College and University levels.  

The past year working through the pandemic has been very difficult on all of us. That said, the work that needs to be done to make sure our students – and our faculty and staff – are supported doesn’t go away. Many of our committees are currently running below the numbers needed to effectively share the necessary work they accomplish.  

I am asking each of you who are willing and able to consider nominating yourself for a position on a committee for 2022-23. The CLAS Faculty Governance website has a list of all standing committees, what they do, and when they meet. Likewise, nominations of others are also welcome. (Individuals must accept nominations – whether made by self or by others – to appear on the ballot.) 

The nomination period will open on Monday, January 24 and will close on Monday, Feb. 7, 2022 (midnight). Nominations for TT positions on the Winter ballot

Accepted nominations for TT faculty governance elections are updated daily here.

The Election Ballot dates are from Monday, February 14 - Monday, February 21.
