Spring Elections

It's Spring 2019 Election Season; those eligible will run for and vote to fill vacancies on the Senate, and ten of the Senate Standing Committees, with service terms that begin in Fall 2019.  Elections in 2019 include nominations and voting for a Senate Secretary (F19-S20).  Faculty will also be electing an ASCSU representative to serve a three-year term, with service beginning in Fall 2019.  And, in addition to the Standing Committees, voting will take place to fill Fall '19 vacancies on the Faculty Awards Selection Committee, Professional Leave Committee, Faculty Center Advisory Council and Faculty Grants Committee. 


Senate Officer Vacancy – service beginning Fall 2019
(Senate Secretary 19/20)

ASCSU Seat – Vacancy will be for Service that begins Fall 2019 through Spring 2022

NEAC is issuing a Call for nominations to fill a vacancy for Senator, serving on the CSU Academic Senate (ASCSU), or “statewide Senate”.  ASCSU is made up of faculty members from each of the CSU’s 23 campuses and represents the CSU faculty in matters of system-wide concern.  CSUSM has two ASCSU representatives, serving three-year, staggered terms.  This Call is for nominations to fill the Fall 2019 through Spring 2022 vacancy.  

Traditionally, the ASCSU holds five plenary meetings each year in Long Beach (Statewide senators attend “Plenary” sessions during their first year of service).  The ASCSU’s committees also meet periodically.  At times, these meetings are conducted electronically or via telephone.  Note:  An ASCSU Senator does not typically serve on a committee during the first year of her/his three-year term.  Travel costs are covered by our campus Senate Office, and reimbursed to CSUSM by the CSU Senate. 

 For additional information, you may wish to visit the ASCSU’s website found at this link.

 If you are “eligible faculty” interested in representing CSUSM on the ASCSU for the period of Fall 2019 through Spring 2022, nominations will be accepted until 5:00 PM on Monday, March 11th.  A list of nominees will be posted on the Spring Election Sample Ballot on 3/12/16.  Additional names may be added until 5PM on 3/15/19.  Nominations should be sent via email to the Academic Senate Office.
