When is the next call for expressions of interest?
Calls are made throughout the year for continued or new vacancies. The annual call for expressions of interest typically takes place every February, for positions in the upcoming academic year. Senators receive first dibs on positions, followed by non-senators. Announcements go out via email to those eligible, with instructions for applying. Information about the current call is always posted at the top of this web page.
I am not a senator, and interested in joining a committee. How do I apply?
When the call is open, a form will be made available above that you can complete. You may apply for up to three committees.
I am a new senator. How do I submit my expression of interest?
As senators are required to sit on a minimum of two standing committees, the Secretariat office will email you with a list of available positions and request your committee choices. You are not required to submit the online form.
Are university officers eligible for faculty positions?
No, an “officer of the university” is not eligible for a faculty position, as they are not designated 'faculty' by the Senate. A university officer includes the following positions:
See also the Senate Bylaws (page 11).
Are directors eligible for faculty positions?
Only "directors of schools" are eligible, as long as they fit the the definition of a faculty member (are voting faculty members). "Directors of schools" are not considered university officers by the Senate Bylaw definitions. All other directors are considered university officers, by the Senate Bylaw definitions, and therefore not eligible.
When will I know the outcome of my application?
Expressions of interest go to the Senate Governance Committee who recommends candidates to Senate for approval. After this process is complete, you will receive an email from the Secretariat office with the results. If you haven't heard back, feel free to reach out to email@example.com.
