* "At-large (for school)" indicates that the named school did not nominate one of its faculty
for a committee position, and so a member of the Faculty, possibly from a different school, was
elected at-large to fill that position for one year, as per the Faculty Senate Bylaws, Article V, Section 2.

Please contact the Faculty Senate Webmaster,
