Opening of Nominations and Election of Convocation Representatives on UEW Governing Council

The term of office of the Convocation Representatives on UEW Governing Council came to an end on February 28, 2022.  Section 8 (1) of the University of Education Act (672) provides that: “Every member of the Council except the Vice-Chancellor and Principals shall hold office for a period of two years and is eligible for re-appointment’.

Statute 70 (2) of the UEW Statutes 2020 also provides that: “The term of office of a Convocation Representative on Council shall be two (2) years and eligible for a further term of two (2) years only.”

As a result, four (4) vacancies have been created in the Convocation slots on Council.  Elections will therefore be organised on the two Campuses.
