Re: Nominations for 2016-2017 Vice Chair of the Academic Council
I request your assistance in nominating candidates to serve as Vice Chair of the Academic Council in 2016-17. The person selected will serve as Vice Chair of the Academic Assembly, the Academic Senate, and the Academic Council, and as a Faculty Representative to the Regents. Outlined below are the procedures adopted by the Academic Council for nominating and selecting the next Vice Chair.
In order to encourage participation in the nomination process and to promote general awareness of Senate leadership succession, please distribute this invitation widely. I ask that it go both to colleagues within the immediate circle of your Senate work and to members of respective divisions broadly.
The procedures are as follows:
- Candidates may nominate themselves or be nominated by a current or past Council member.
- Candidates must submit to Senate Executive Director Hilary Baxter (Hilary Baxter@ucop.edu) a one-page curriculum vitae, a one-page statement of challenges and priorities for the Senate, and a simple statement indicating a willingness to serve as Vice Chair and then Chair of the Academic Senate, if elected. Candidates should be aware that the position is a full-time assignment at the Office of the President in Oakland.
- Candidates are urged to submit their materials by March 16, 2016.
- Candidates must be able to attend the March 30, 2016, meeting of the Academic Council to make a brief presentation and to participate in an interview with Council members. The Academic Council will make its selection of a nominee at its March 30th meeting, and will forward its nomination to the Assembly for action at the Assembly’s meeting on April 13, 2016.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
J. Daniel Hare, Chair
