MEMBERS OF THE ACADEMIC SENATE, SAN DIEGO DIVISION
On behalf of Bill Jacob, Academic Council Chair, I am forwarding this call for nominations for Vice Chair of the (systemwide) Academic Council.
MEMBERS OF THE ASSEMBLY OF THE ACADEMIC SENATE
Re: Nominations for 2014-2015 Vice Chair of the Academic Council
I request your assistance in nominating candidates to serve as Vice Chair of the Academic Council in 2014-15. I outline, below, the procedures adopted by the Academic Council for nominating and selecting the next Vice Chair of the Academic Senate.
I ask that you distribute this invitation to your Senate colleagues, both within the immediate circle of your Senate work and as broadly as possible among the faculty of your respective campuses, in order to encourage awareness of and participation in the nomination process and general knowledge of matters associated with the succession of Senate leadership.
The procedures are as follows:
1. Candidates may nominate themselves or be nominated by a current or past Council member.
2. Candidates must submit to Senate Executive Director Martha Winnacker (Martha.Winnacker@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.
3. Candidates are urged to submit their materials by March 14, 2014.
4. Candidates must be able to attend the April 2, 2014, 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 April 2nd meeting, and will forward its nomination to the Assembly for action at the Assembly's meeting on April 16, 2014.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
Bill Jacob, Chair
