Elections are underway for faculty membership on CALS Academic Planning Council for terms running from 2016-2019. APC is the primary shared governance body in the college and advises the dean on strategic planning, resource allocation, academic program proposals, and more. Four faculty seats are up for election, one each from Food Science (Division 1), Soil Science (Division 2), Life Sciences Communication (Division 3), and Bacteriology (Division 5). Faculty members will receive an email invitation from firstname.lastname@example.org to participate in the online balloting (all CALS faculty may vote in all open divisions) – please watch for the message in your in-box and be sure to vote before the election closes on May 13th. The next open academic staff seat will occur in 2017, and the Extension seat will be open in 2018.
