An official email will be coming out this afternoon, but thought I’d publicize this here as well. SJSU has been chosen as one of the campuses to send a faculty member to serve on the Faculty Trustee nominating committee. The job of the committee is to recommend up to four candidates for service as the Faculty Trustee on the CSU Board of Trustees. The Board has been without a Faculty Trustee for close to 2 years as Governor Schwarzenegger refused to appoint any of the last slate of candidates to the position – it’s a long story – but choosing a new slate will be extremely important.
The timeline is very short – we need to hear from you by 5:00 PM this Friday, Oct 1 – if you are a faculty member who would like to serve on the nominating committee. Here are the details:
San José State has been selected as one of two campuses which are to send one faculty representative to the Faculty Trustee Recommending Committee. The qualifications of the faculty representative to the committee shall be the same as for eligibility for election as a representative to the ASCSU. These qualifications can be found in By-Law 13 in the Academic Senate Handbook (http://www.sjsu.edu/senate/handbook10_11/bylaws.htm).
The Faculty Trustee Recommending Committee is charged with screening the list of faculty trustee nominees, developing recommendations, and presenting four faculty trustee candidates for nomination to the Statewide Academic Senate at the January 19-21, 2011 plenary meeting.
The Faculty Trustee Recommending Committee will have a one-time meeting beginning at 4:00 pm on Tuesday, January 18, 2011 (date is tentative) at the CSU Chancellor’s Office in Long Beach to review the nominating materials, which will be mailed to committee members the first week of January.
If you wish to be considered for this position, electronically submit a written statement of interest and qualifications to the Associate Vice Chair of the Academic Senate (Susan.McClory@sjsu.edu) by 5:00 pm on Friday, October 1. Please limit these statements to one page.
