RE:	Election of Representatives to the Graduate Council for 2012-2015 term
We are pleased to provide a slate of candidates who have agreed to serve if elected to the Graduate Council.
The Graduate Council is the policy-recommending body for the Graduate Faculty and the Graduate School. It has an important role in determining the direction of graduate education and programs at the University of Florida. There are 13 graduate faculty on the Council.  Twelve members (6 elected by the Graduate Faculty and 6 appointed by the Provost) serve three-year terms, with four members (2 elected and 2 appointed) retiring each year. A representative from the Graduate Coordinators Advisory Council serves for a one-year term.  Additionally, a member from the Graduate Student Council serves for a one-year term.
Please vote for two members who will serve for the 2012-2015 academic years. After the election, the Provost's two appointments typically will come from areas lacking representation.
All Graduate Faculty holding a regular appointment in his/her primary department are eligible to vote.
Voting will be conducted MARCH 23, 2012 - APRIL 13, 2012.
