Faculty Council 2016 Elections

Dear Colleagues,

It is time to nominate members of your division for Faculty Council.  We are asking you to nominate capable and willing colleagues.  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 monthly during the academic year, usually on the fourth Wednesday of the month at Water Tower Campus, from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. with video conference available to the LSC and HSD campuses.  Prospective candidates are expected to attend the monthly FC meeting at WTC, though video conferencing is available.  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.  For more information, visit the Faculty Council website.

For more information on what Faculty Council has been up to in the past two years of service, please look for an e-mail of our activities from your Dean in the coming week or two. You can always reach out to myself as well and I will be pleased to send you a copy of our recent activities.
