Nominations open for Elections to the General Assembly
(4 March 2016)
The General Assembly is a 200-strong governance body that represents staff, students and other principal stakeholders in the University. The main purpose of the General Assembly is to act as a two-way channel of communication through which the University presents its achievements to its broader constituencies, and receives feedback and advice on matters relating to University business. It also includes University staff, alumni and students within its membership.
A number of appointments to the elected category of the General Assembly membership held by staff (full-time or part-time) with paid, superannuable appointments at the University will terminate on 31 August 2016.
Only those academic-related and other staff members appointed to the General Assembly in this election are eligible to seek election to the Board of Governors later in the academic year.
Colleagues are advised that nominations are now being sought for election to the following numbers of vacancies within the electoral groups indicated:
- Academic and research staff: 1
- Academic-related (excluding research) staff: 1
- Other staff (including PSS): 7
