Academic Electoral Assembly
New Chair of the Academic Electoral Assembly
Peter Swift, Vice Master of Grey College and Teaching Fellow in Physics has been elected Chair of the Academic Electoral Assembly (AEA) by the AEA Standing Committee following its 8 September meeting. Peter replaces Laura Todd who has stood down as Chair. Standing Committee recorded its warmest thanks to Laura for her 18 months service as Chair of the AEA. Laura’s term as Chair witnessed a record number of candidates standing and voter participation during the 2016 election to the Standing Committee and to Senate.
The Academic Electoral Assembly (AEA) consists of all members of staff performing academic or academic-related roles (normally taken to mean staff on Grade 7 or above)*, with the exception of ex officio members of Senate, together with the Senior Tutor (or one Tutor of equivalent rank) from each of the Recognised Colleges or Licensed Halls of Residence.
* All members of staff, however, are very welcome to attend general discussion meetings. Formal items of business, if there are any, will be conducted at the end of the meeting, at which time non-AEA members will be invited to leave.
