Election EC & AC 2006

(Election active April 27, 2006 8:00 am CDT through May 12, 2006 8:00 pm CDT)

As has been done the last several years, the annual elections for the Graduate College Executive Committee and the Graduate College Awards Committee are being held on-line.

Each academic year approximately one-half of the seats on the Executive Committee and the Awards Committee are filled with new members (members serve a two-year term). The Dean of the Graduate College requests nominations in March, and a sample ballot is presented at the Graduate Faculty Annual Meeting in April. At the meeting, faculty can put forth additional nominations, and then the ballot is ratified. The election is held shortly after the meeting. See Graduate College Bylaws for additional information.

Voter Eligibility

Members of the Graduate Faculty with tenured or tenure-track appointments only. Adjunct, Emeritus, Courtesy, and other members who are allowed to serve on student committees but do not currently hold tenured or tenure-track appointments are not eligible to vote in these elections.
