Elected AFAC members must be reasonably available to receive and hear concerns or suggestions throughout the academic year. They should also be available for approximately 10 three-hour AFAC meetings throughout the year; monthly meetings are typically held on Zoom on Friday mornings (8-11 a.m.).
Committee members are expected to serve on a subcommittee and to commit significant additional time to preparing for and communicating between meetings. They receive compensation for their service, in accordance with university policy.
Nominations must be received by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 6.
Elections will take place Oct. 8-15 in the five schools and colleges. All adjunct faculty within those schools or colleges who are teaching or scheduled to teach (as of the first day of autumn quarter) in the current academic year are eligible to vote and will receive voting instructions from their dean at the start of the voting period.
Election results will be announced in late October.
