The University of Akron Chapter |
American Association of University Professors

Special Election to be Held in January
The chapter is seeking nominations for a special election for Akron-AAUP Vice-President. The successful 
candidate will serve a partial term, concluding in May 2021.  A description of this position can be found
 here.
You may nominate yourself or someone else for the position. Only chapter members may hold 
office or participate in chapter elections. Nominations and self-nominations are due by 5 p.m., 
Friday, January 10th, to elections@akronaaup.org. As a courtesy, please make sure that your nominee 
is interested in the position prior to nominating them!  All nominees will need to provide a brief platform 
statement addressing their candidacy.
All active Akron-AAUP chapter members will receive an electronic ballot for this important leadership 
position shortly after nominations close. The Nominations and Elections Committee are John Zipp 
(Chair, Chapter Past President), Kate Budd (Communications Committee), and McKenna Vietmeier 
(Communications Committee).
Being a part of the Akron-AAUP leadership team is highly meaningful service that makes a real difference
to the working conditions of faculty across campus. If you are considering running for election, please 
note that according to the collective bargaining agreement, service to the Akron-AAUP is credited in the 
same manner as service to all other university committees for merit and RTP purposes. 
We look forward to hearing from you!

-The Akron-AAUP Nominations Committee
