York University’s Senate Executive Committee is issuing its annual call for expressions of personal interest in, and suggestions for, nominations for membership on Senate Committee and other positions elected by Senate.

A list of the open positions is set out below, and detailed information about membership opportunities and committee mandates has been posted on an Elections page on the Senate website.

Expressions of personal interest and the recommendation of other individuals can be transmitted by means of a form created for this purpose. Specific criteria for each of the positions should be reviewed carefully before the forms are submitted.

Individuals must be available to serve at the standing meeting times of committees. Senators are asked by the Executive Committee to consider expressing their own personal interest and encouraging others to do so.

The nominations process is open now through to Thursday, May 11 at noon.
