Academic Board is seeking nominations to fill a vacancy in the membership category of elected Members of Academic Staff who shall be elected by and from the Members of Academic Staff. In line with the definition provided in the Statutes, a Member of Academic Staff means ‘any person appointed to a post designated by the Council as academic staff of the College.’

The term of office of the newly-elected member will run from 1 October 2021 to 30 September 2023, in accordance with the provisions made in the Standing Orders for filling a vacancy which arises before the designated end of a term of office. The first meeting of Academic Board for the newly-elected members will take place on Wednesday 8 December 2021.

All nominations must be received by Dr Jon Howden-Evans, Director of Student and Academic Services (AcademicBoardrhul.ac.uk) no later than 5pm on Tuesday 9 November 2021.
