Remember that the Annual Faculty Committee Interest Survey, where faculty members indicate personal interests in serving on both University and Academic Senate committees, will close Monday, March 4. Complete the brief survey by the deadline.
The Academic Senate Personnel & Elections Committee is charged with nominating faculty members to serve on dozens of University and Senate committees that address myriad issues such as academic policy, diversity, academic freedom, teaching awards, athletics, conflicts of interest and others. This year there are 74 faculty vacancies on 27 committees. Membership on Senate committees is decided by the election of the Academic Senate. Appointment to University committees is made by President Ruth Watkins from a slate of candidates submitted by the P & E Committee.
The concept of shared governance at the university is dependent upon active faculty participation. University of Utah Academic Senate officers and Personnel & Elections Committee members appreciate your consideration for being nominated to serve on one or more of these important committees.
