Nominating Committee

Prior to the first meeting of the new Senate, the Nominating Committee recommends to the Steering Committee a list of up to four willing candidates for each of the Senate offices.

Nominating Procedures

As the first order of business at the first meeting of the new Senate in April, the Senate shall elect from its voting membership by majority vote a chair, vice chair and secretary to perform the duties and functions of the positions. Each of the officers has a one-year term, beginning immediately following the annual election.

  1. No later than April 1, the Office of the Faculty Senate shall make public a list of all Faculty Senate members for the coming year and issue a call to the general faculty for nominations for Faculty Senate officers from this list. In the eleventh week of the spring semester, the Nominating Committee shall select up to four willing candidates for each office from among the candidates nominated by the faculty. In addition, the Nominating Committee may add additional nominees for each office not previously put forward by the faculty.
  2. At least one week prior to the first meeting of the new Faculty Senate, the Office of the Faculty Senate shall distribute the names and biographical statements of nominees to all members of the Faculty Senate. Additional nominations for each office shall also be accepted from the floor of the Faculty Senate.
  3. Voting for officers will be conducted by secret ballot. Election of officers will be by majority of those senators present and voting. There shall be no voting by proxy.
  4. Should the chair of the Faculty Senate resign that office, the vice chair shall assume the office of chair, and the Steering Committee shall appoint a vice chair for the remainder of the term. Should the vice chair or secretary resign, the Steering Committee shall appoint replacements to those positions.

Membership

This committee consists of the Senate past chair, who shall serve as chair of the committee, and two other Steering Committee members. If the immediate past chair is not available, the Steering Committee must elect a faculty member to serve in this role.
