Polls open for Advisory Board vote

Academic Council members in all seven schools are eligible to vote to fill positions to represent the School of Engineering and the School of Medicine. Voting closes April 6.

Voting is under way to elect two members of the university's Academic Council Advisory Board.

Two positions are open: one to represent the School of Engineering and another to represent the School of Medicine. Academic Council members in all seven schools are eligible to vote.

The five candidates listed on the ballot for each position received the most votes during the first round of voting, which was open only to faculty in engineering and medicine.

The Advisory Board is composed of seven members who serve three-year staggered terms.

At the March 6 senate meeting, Provost John Etchemendy emphasized the importance of the board's work.

"It is a fantastic committee that we are very lucky to have," Etchemendy said. "Most universities do not have an entity of that sort as part of the appointments/promotions process, and as part of the general advice to the provost and the president. So please make sure that you vote."

The polls close Sunday, April 6, at 11:59 p.m.

Voters will cast ballots via a secure webpage that requires sign in with SUNet ID.
