Academic Board Election Process
The Academic Board is a committee of the Senate and therefore, its election process has been aligned with that of the Senate. That is, it involves:
A call for nomination with a candidate supporting statement to be submitted to the Academic Secretary by a designated date as advised.
Preparation and issue of ballot papers to all members of the Board via mail (this ensures that every Academic Board member has the opportunity to vote regardless of attendance at a meeting).
Ballots closing at noon by a designated date as advised (voters must ensure that their ballot is received by the Academic Secretary by the published date and time).
Vote counting on a nominated date in the presence of scrutineers (up to one per nominee), if the nominees so wish. Names of scrutineers to be advised to the Academic Secretary ([email protected] a designated date as advised.
The Senate election process has been tried and tested; aligning the Academic Board election process to that of the Senate optimises the preservation of integrity in the election process.
For any queries please contact the Academic Secretary by email ([email protected]) or phone ext. 3213.
