Nominations for elected academic staff members of Senate, the University’s supreme academic body, have now closed. 

Elections to senate occur each year. This year there are 130 positions available to staff in our academic staff community, with 98 nominations received.

Categories where elections are required 

An election will be held in the following categories. Lists of candidates and candidate statements are available at the links below (EASE login required). 

Categories where elections are not required 

In these categories, the number of nominations received was equal to or fewer than the number of vacancies: 

  • Elected academic staff (Professorial) - College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences 
  • Elected academic staff (non-Professorial) - College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine
