Each spring, the Office of Faculty Governance conducts an election for faculty to select their representatives on the Faculty Council as well as to vote for members to serve on a variety of faculty committees. Every three years, a new chair of the faculty is elected. Current Chair of the Faculty Mimi Chapman was elected in 2020.
The 2021 Faculty Election was held April 1-13.. Find more information about this year’s candidates in the 2021 Voter Guide.
