Nominations for UK Board of Trustees
Members of the University Faculty,
The UK Board of Trustees is the highest governing body of the University and establishes the various policies directly affecting the programs created by, employment conditions of, and the academic careers of, the University Faculty.
Faculty Trustee Joe Peek resigned from his seat on the UK Board of Trustees, effective December 31, 2011. Under state law, an election must be held to determine a member of the University Faculty body who will fill the seat for the remainder of its unexpired term, through June 30, 2013. The UK Board of Trustees has delegated to the University Senate the authority to conduct the election, and the University Senate has in turn delegated the certification of candidate and voter eligibilities in the election to the Senate’s Rules and Elections Committee. This announcement briefly explains the election process that is now commencing. The objective is to complete the election in time for the new Faculty Trustee to be sworn in and attend the next scheduled Board of Trustees meeting on Feb. 21, 2012. Click here for the Nomination Petition.
A. Persons Eligible to Submit Nominations. The Senate Council Office will receive (either hand-delivered to 203E Main Bldg. or by color pdf scan to firstname.lastname@example.org) nominations of candidates submitted by any faculty employee of any title, rank series, or administrative assignment; whether full-time, temporary or part-time; and including those who may not be a member of the formal College Faculty body of their college. The deadline for submitting the petition is noon Friday, January 20, 2012. The faculty employee taking responsibility for submitting the petition is responsible to (1) confirm that at least ten (10) persons signing the petition are eligible to vote in the election, (2) confirm that the individual being nominated is eligible to be elected and (3) confirm the individual nominated is willing to serve. Persons may self-nominate. A petition form provided by the Senate Council Office must be used (a copy is also attached to this email). Submitted petitions will not be opened and certified until after the above deadline for submission of petitions. Petitions not satisfying one or more of the above requirements will not be certified and the nominated person will not be placed on the ballot.
B. University Faculty Members Eligible to Sign Nominating Petitions and Vote..
Persons eligible to sign nominating petitions and vote in the election must be a member of the University Faculty (i.e., a member of the faculty body of one of the colleges), who are in a status of regular, full-time employment in the Regular Title Series, Special Title Series, Extension Title Series, Librarian Title Series, Clinical Title Series or Research Title Series or at or above the rank of Assistant Professor, who have not been appointed to an administrative position at/above the level of department chair, and who are not on phased retirement.
C. University Faculty Members Who are Eligible to be Elected.
Under current state law and University regulations, persons eligible to be elected must be a member of the University Faculty (i.e., a member of the faculty body of one of the colleges), who are in a status of regular, full-time employment, and with a rank of Assistant Professor (or its equivalent) or higher, in either the Regular Title Series, Special Title Series, Extension Title Series or Librarian Title Series, (but who have not been administratively appointed to a position at/above the level of department chair nor are on phased retirement). Also note, the University by state law is not allowed to employ a relative of a Faculty Trustee.
The election of a representative of the University Faculty to the UK Board of Trustees is an important authority afforded directly to the members of the University Faculty through state law enacted by the Kentucky Legislature. All individuals eligible to participate in any of the above election capacities are strongly urged to do so, to ensure the quality of the election and thereby maximize the stature and presence of the chosen University Faculty representative on the Board of Trustees.
