Non-Senate faculty members may submit a nomination for a representative to serve on the U-M Police Department Oversight Committee. Nominations will be accepted through May 8.

The election process announced March 16 was temporarily suspended by University Human Resources and has been reopened.

The Police Department Oversight Committee includes two student members, two faculty members (one Senate faculty and one non-Senate faculty), and two staff members (one union and one non-union representative), who are nominated and elected by their peers for two-year terms.

The committee considers grievances against any police officer or the U-M Police Department and reports its findings and recommendations to the Division of Public Safety and Security executive director. 

Nominations submitted in March will carry forward in the process and do not need to be submitted again.

The election will take place in May, and the newly elected member’s appointment will begin in late June.

Non-Senate faculty members may nominate themselves or other lecturers, active emeriti, adjunct or clinical faculty members by completing a form on the University Human Resources website at hr.umich.edu/pdoc
