Faculty governance at Georgia Tech is made up of several committees that serve as its backbone. Many initiatives and new programs originate from these groups, and nominations for Spring 2019 elections are now open.

Vacancies are available on the following committees:

For All Faculty
  • Faculty Honors
  • Faculty Status and Grievance
  • Faculty Statutes
  • Faculty Services
  • Welfare and Security
  • Services and Central Admin*
  • Faculty Executive Board**
For Academic Faculty
  • Student Academic and Financial Affairs
  • Student Activities
  • Student Regulations
  • Student Grievance and Appeal
  • Student Honor
  • Student Computer Ownership
  • Academic Integrity
  • Undergraduate Curriculum
  • Graduate Curriculum††

Nominations will be accepted through Sunday, Feb. 10, via email at nominations2019@lists.gatech.edu. Self-nominations are welcome.

The Georgia Tech Faculty Nominating Committee seeks to honor all requests for particular committees; nominators are asked to keep in mind that some elections are constrained by requirements associated with particular seats and the necessity to balance campus representation.

Those selected by the Faculty Nominations Committee for the final ballot will be notified approximately one week before the election commences. Elected faculty will serve a three-year term, from August 2019 through August 2022.

For a description of the work for each committee, visit the Faculty Handbook: Section 2.6 Standing Committees of the Faculty. For questions about the nomination or election process, contact:
