Nominating Committee

  • Mandate

    The Nominating Committee is responsible for composing a slate of nominations to:

    • populate all the committees of Faculty Council
    • elect Senators to serve on Schulich allocated positions in the York University Senate, and
    • elect faculty representatives for Schulich designated positions on the Senate’s committees as mandated by the Senate

    The Committee follows specific instructions, as approved from time to time by the Faculty Council in constructing the slate of nominations. In composing the slate of nominations, the Committee consults widely with many stakeholders including the Dean and Associate Deans, the Program Directors, and the Faculty at large. The Committee also invites input from the students through the two designated student members. The slate is presented to Council as a motion for approval during the Council’s last session of the academic year, normally in June. As necessary throughout the year, updates and modifications are presented.
