Faculty Governance & Elections

Fall Election



 Ballot (nominate here during the nomination period)


Nominations have been extended to Wed, Sept 12 at 5 PM.  Voting will open on Fri, Sept 14 at 8 AM  and will remain open for 1 week.

Fall election: CLAS Faculty Council (CFC) has 10 seats on college and university committees to fill.  The meeting times for these committees and eligibility restrictions are outlined below.  As ~60% of faculty in CLAS are already serving on committee, CFC asks those who are not currently serving on college or university committees to talk to your unit head (or chair of CFC) about the benefits of serving on one of these committees (either asking for someone to nominate or self-nominating).  The description of each committee will be on the ballot as well as posted on the CLAS Faculty Governance and Election website.
