More About Councilor Elections
Nominees for council must hold a P-based employment status. Council terms are generally for three years, and approximately one-third of the Council is chosen at each election. Elected councilors attend regular council meetings and are appointed to serve on a standing committee. The total commitment is apporximately 4 - 8 hours a month. This varies on the amount of involvement, elections to office, etc. Browse our website to find out more about Professional and Scientific Council activities and responsibilities.
The Council consists of approximately 40 members, including seven officers, elected from Academica Affairs, Finance, President's Office, Student Affairs, and University Services (or 1 representative for every 75 P&S employees). Please see our current list of Councilors and the areas which they represent.
