Nominations will be taken from the floor; however, the nominator must obtain, in advance, the nominee's willingness to serve if elected, and the nominee must have contacted the Faculty Senate Office indicating they are willing to be nominated. If you plan to nominate someone, please contact Vickie Nunnemaker ([email protected]) to determine candidate eligibility.
