Faculty Senate President-Elect Vacancy: The 2016 Faculty Senate President-Elect has resigned after accepting appointment as an associate vice provost. The Faculty Senate Bylaws indicate that those in Executive Levels 1, 2 and 3 (dean and above) are represented by the Faculty Senate, but are not eligible to represent faculty. Because the individual in the 2016 position becomes the Faculty Senate President in January 2017, there will be an early Fall election for this position and the individual elected will begin immediately after the results are determined. The President-Elect candidate slate will be presented for approval during the Oct. 13 Faculty Senate meeting, and nominations will be accepted from the floor of those individuals who have previous experience as a Faculty Senator (the Faculty Senate Office can assist in determining eligibility). Faculty may nominate themselves or others through Oct. 12 by contacting Vickie Nunnemaker at vickie.nunnemaker@oregonstate.edu. Nominators must obtain, in advance, the nominee’s willingness to serve if elected. Candidates should be aware that, given the short President-Elect term, several of the past presidents have offered to assume some of the committee responsibilities during 2017.
