Regular elections for senators and officers take place every three years, most recently in Spring 2016. Elections are conducted according to Senate Bylaws and Standing Rules. Senate constituents—faculty; chairs, assistant chairs, and equivalent academic-administrative titles; and staff who hold faculty rank or teach—are eligible to participate in their respective categories. Your participation in elections helps build a strong, inclusive, and representative Senate. Please contact the Senate (firstname.lastname@example.org) with questions.
The Academic Senate elects members of Senate and Institute committees and nominates candidates for honorary degrees, faculty trustees, and Board committees. For details on these positions, see Nominations.
