Seeking new members for CALS Committee on Academic Staff Issues

The CALS Committee on Academic Staff Issues (CASI) is currently seeking nominations for members to serve a three-year term on the committee starting in September 2016. For more information, read the Call For Nominations letter.

CASI serves as a link between the college’s administration and its academic staff. CASI members review and rank CALS academic staff professional development proposals and nominations for CALS academic staff recognition awards for service, leadership and research, provide feedback to the dean on issues that affect academic staff, and convey information to academic staff about CALS policies and opportunities on interest to them.

Three new members are needed to represent Ward II (instructional staff), Ward IV (basic sciences) and Ward V (applied sciences). To view/download a current Ward list, please click below:

Included with the name of the nominee should be the candidate’s consent, a statement of the candidate’s background, and reasons for wanting to serve on the committee.
