Academic Board Student Elections

The Academic Board of the University of Divinity exercises oversight of academic programs and courses of study and other academic affairs, and provides advice to the University Council on academic matters, as required under Regulation 2: General Academic Provisions.

Regulation 2 (clauses 2.1.3.f and 2.1.3.g) provides that two students be elected to the University of Divinity Academic Board. Therefore, nominations are now being called for:

·        One coursework student, elected by coursework students, for a term of one year

·        One research student, elected by research students, for a term of one year

Terms of Reference for the Academic Board can be found on the University of Divinity website.

Nominations for each of these positions are to be made on the Nomination Form. Send the completed Nomination Form to the Returning Officer by email at jreaney@divinity.edu.au or posted to University of Divinity, Returning Officer, 21 Highbury Grove, KEW 3101, Victoria.

Nominations must be received by 5pm on Wednesday 28 October 2015 so please act promptly if you wish to nominate yourself or someone else.

Any currently enrolled student who will be studying throughout 2016, i.e. will not complete their course after Semester 1, may nominate. A student may nominate themselves or another student. If nominating someone else, please ensure that the nominee completes the consent section on the Nomination Form.

As the outcome may need to be decided by an election, all nominees are required, to be considered eligible for nomination, to supply a short biography (less than 100 words) highlighting their suitability for the role.

Successful nominees will receive a comprehensive induction into the operation of Academic Board before they assume their role.

Academic Board meetings will be held at Catholic Theological College, East Melbourne at 9.30 am on the following Fridays in 2016: 19 February; 15 April; 27 May; 29 July; 9 September; and 11 November.

Videoconferencing and teleconferencing facilities are available if required.
