Elections to General Assembly

27 Jun 2014

Nominations are invited for nine vacancies on the University's governance body

The General Assembly is a governance body, of more than 200 members, on which the University's stakeholders are represented. It encompasses those who have an interest in the University's welfare, whether they are staff members or students, or representative of the many and varied external interests upon which our activities impact. The majority of its members are from outside the University. It meets twice in each academic year.

A number of appointments to the elected category of the General Assembly membership held by staff members (full-time or part-time) with paid, superannuable appointments at the University will terminate on 31 August 2014.

Colleagues are advised that nominations are now being sought for election to the following numbers of vacancies within the electoral groups indicated:

  • Academic and research staff: three vacancies
  • Academic-related (excluding research) staff: two vacancies

  • Other staff: four vacancies
