Faculty nominees sought for Police Department Oversight Committee

Topic: Campus News

Nominees are sought to represent Faculty Senate and non-Senate positions on the U-M Police Department Oversight Committee. This committee receives and makes recommendations regarding grievances against any police officer or the U-M Police Department.

The six-member committee consists of two student members, two faculty members (one Senate faculty and one non-Senate faculty), and two staff members (one union and one non-union), who are nominated and elected by their peers for two-year terms.

University Human Resources is soliciting nominations for the non-Senate faculty representative. Members of the following groups are eligible to be nominated for and participate in the election for this position: lecturers, emeriti, adjunct and clinical faculty members.    

Faculty members may nominate themselves or another lecturer, emeriti, adjunct or clinical faculty member. Nominees will be contacted by Staff Human Resources for their consent to run in the March election.

Appointment of the newly elected member of the committee will take place in April. 

Nominations for the non-Senate faculty position can be made online through Feb. 28.

The Faculty Senate is following a separate timeline to elect its representative to the committee.

Senate members may submit nominations of eligible Senate members to facultysenateoffice@umich.edu. The Senate includes all tenured and tenure-track professors, librarians, primary research faculty with full-time appointments, executive officers and deans.
