Article IV

Prior to each Spring Academic Staff election, the Committee for Elections and Appointments shall review the service areas and the units within each service area and recommend any revisions to the Academic Staff Senate for review and submission to the membership of the academic staff for action.

To stand for election to the Academic Staff Senate, an eligible academic staff member must indicate candidacy to the Committee for Elections and Appointments or be nominated for election by the Committee for Elections and Appointments.

The Committee for Elections and Appointments will only nominate an individual for election in the event that no member of the academic staff has filed to run for a specific Senate seat. Furthermore, the committee will not nominate any individual unless it is clear that there are no nominations forthcoming from the eligible academic staff members.
