Regular elections for senators and officers take place every three years and are conducted according to Senate Bylaws and Standing Rules. Senate constituents—faculty; chairs, assistant chairs, and academic coordinators; and staff who hold faculty titles or teach credit-bearing courses—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 also 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.
