Notices of Election

Staff and student elections are being conducted for positions on Faculty, University School, University School Boards, and Faculty Boards for a term of office commencing on 1 January 2020, as required under the University of Sydney (Governance of Faculties and University Schools) Rule 2016 (the Rule) and the Election Procedures 2017.

Nominations from eligible staff and students will open on Tuesday 16 July and will close at 4pm on Tuesday 30 July 2019.

Information on the available positions, including the number of positions, the allocation of positions to specific categories of staff and students, and the term of office, is available on the Faculty and University School Elections 2019 page*.

*Following normal University procedures, elections for the Faculty of Health Sciences and for the Faculty of Medicine and Health (FMH) are being held separately in 2019. From 1 January 2020, Health Sciences will become part of the Faculty of Medicine and Health, which means there will be one faculty board and faculty from January 2020.

What does this mean for Health Sciences staff and students elected during 2019?
Health Sciences staff and students are being elected in the normal manner during the 2019 elections. However, elected staff and students will be subject to the transitional arrangements required for Health Sciences to join the Faculty of Medicine and Health from 2020.

Transitional Arrangements:
In accordance with the Governance of Faculties and University Schools Rule (GOFUS), the FMH Faculty Board (in consultation with Health Sciences) will be determining the number of FMH faculty board places to be allocated to the new School of Health Sciences, consistent with arrangements for all schools within FMH. This will occur during 2019 in order to ensure adequate representation and the proper participation of Health Sciences staff and student representatives on the FMH faculty board and faculty from January 2020.

More details on the transitional arrangements for Health Sciences staff and students elected during 2019 will be made available over the coming months.

Where required, an electronic ballot for all elections will commence on Tuesday 13 August and close at 4pm on Tuesday 27 August 2019.
