The Senate Advisory Committee on University Affairs, central faculty governance’s nine-member executive arm, approved Ortega by acclamation at its meeting Monday. He was the sole person to declare intentions to run for the leadership position.

Ortega also will chair the Senate Assembly and the Faculty Senate. His term begins May 1 and he succeeds William Schultz, professor of mechanical engineering and applied mechanics, and naval architecture and marine engineering.

The vice chair has not yet been determined.
