Senate committee vacancies are now posted

The University Secretariat is inviting all faculty, staff, and students to put their names forward for membership on Senate committees. 

The Senate has five standing committees and also appoints members to a range of other committees at Queen’s. Details about all existing vacancies are listed on the vacancies page

  • Committee terms are usually for two years, with the number of meetings per year depending on the particular committee's area of responsibility.
  • Most terms will start Sept. 1, but any exceptions are listed next to the committee name on the vacancies page.

Senate committees discuss issues of broad interest to the academic community and make recommendations on policy and practice that are essential to the university's operations and evolution. Committee work allows members to directly affect the way Queen's functions as a teaching and research institution, and as a community of scholars, students, and staff.

The application deadline is Feb. 9.
