  • There will be a single election for both Professors and non-professorial academic staff members of Academic Assembly
  • All members of Academic Assembly are eligible to vote for candidates to fill all vacancies, but will vote separately for Professorial and non-professorial academic staff vacancies
  • Ordinance 8.12 stipulates that there shall be 12 Professors with no fewer than two from each Faculty/School

  • Ordinance 8.12 stipulates that there shall be 12 non-professorial academic staff members of Academic Assembly with no fewer than two from each Faculty/School

  • Elected members have a duty to represent the University‚Äôs interests as a whole rather than the interests of any particular constituency.
