Faculty Governance Elections Upcoming

Primary tabs

Faculty members of all levels are wanted to serve on committees as part of Georgia Tech’s Faculty Governance.

Vacancies are currently available on all but one committee. Committees are considered the crux of faculty governance and are where many initiatives and new programs originate. 

“This is representative governance, and to be successful it needs representation,” said President G.P. “Bud” Peterson at the Faculty Senate’s Feb. 14 meeting.

Potential committee members should apply by Friday, Feb. 24. The Faculty Nominations Committee will attempt to honor all requests, but some elections are limited by specific requirements, such as membership in a particular college. Those who are selected by the Faculty Nominations Committee for the final ballot will be notified, and those eventually elected are expected to serve from August 2017 through August 2020. Nominations or suggestions can be submitted to
