Nomination Calls and Elections (held by GFC)
Presidential/Vice-Presidential/Dean Search and Review Committees are regularly established at the University of Alberta. General Faculties Council (GFC) is routinely called upon to arrange for the nomination and election of representative(s) to populate search/review committee compositions in accordance to the policies and procedure within the Recruitment Policy (in UAPPOL). For Faculty-specific committee compositions, please view: Dean Selection/Review Procedure Appendix "A" - Dean Selection Committees for Individual Faculties (in UAPPOL)
Campus interest and response to a nomination call may generate a pool of multiple nominees, thus requiring an election (held by GFC) to declare the successful candidate(s) to a membership role on the selection/review committee. It's regular practice by the GFC Nominating Committee, through the delegation of authority by GFC, to electronically distribute nomination calls to the relevant constituencies (academic staff, non-academic staff, public members) in order to raise awareness and encourage nominations and/or expressions of interest from eligible nominees, as stipulated within the established committee membership composition.
On-Line Elections (held by GFC) are facilitated by the GFC Nominating Committee and administered by University Governance using the "eVote" electronic voting application.
|If you have any questions related to the above nomination and election processes, please email GFC Nominating Committee Coordinator, Ann Hodgson or telephone at: 780-492-1938.
