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 COB 5:00pm Friday 11 September 2020.
  • 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]) by a date to be advised in due course.

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.
