Faculty Council Elections

Dear Colleagues,

Each Spring, open seats on Faculty Council provide you the opportunity to nominate members of your division for Faculty Council. We ask you to nominate capable and willing colleagues (or yourself!). It is important that you nominate ONLY colleagues who are willing and able to serve, so please check with them on their willingness to serve. You may also nominate yourself.

Faculty Council Expectations

Faculty Council meets via monthly video conference on each Loyola campus during the academic year, usually on the fourth Wednesday of the month from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. Prospective candidates are expected to attend the monthly FC meeting and to serve on one of the Council's committees. Please check with your nominees that they do not have a conflict in their schedule for this day and time. We suggest that you do not nominate them if they can NOT meet this requirement. A faculty member elected to Faculty Council serves a two-year term and may stand for reelection.

Who Is Eligible

All full-time faculty are eligible for nomination. You may nominate up to one more than the number of vacancies in your division.
