Elections to the General Assembly of the University

24 May 2012

For the attention of all paid staff.

The General Assembly is a governance body, some 200 strong, on which the University’s stakeholders are represented. It encompasses those who have an interest in the University’s well being, whether they are staff members or students, or representatives 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 2012.

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: 1
  • Academic-related (excluding research) staff: 3
  • Other staff: 4

Further information and a nomination form can be found on the University website at:

Please download as necessary.

Nomination forms should be returned by 12 noon on Monday 18 June 2012 to:

  • Martin Conway
    Deputy Secretary
    1.031, John Owens Building

If ballots are required, voting instructions will be issued to individual electors within each electoral group concerned.
