Dear colleagues,

As you may be aware, voting opened on Monday 24 June for the academic staff position on the SHU Board of Governors.

The statements from all the candidates are available on the staff intranet and we would urge you to read them all and vote for who you think will best represent you. The position is not one reserved for a UCU representative and as such there is no official UCU candidate. 

However, Karen Grainger has been a dedicated and hardworking member of the SHU UCU committee for many years and continues to serve as a UCU representative for the Humanities Department. Karen is fully supported and endorsed by the committee members. We believe that Karen would be an excellent Governor and would work tirelessly to ensure that the voices of academic staff are heard in the boardroom.

Please read all the statements and use your vote!

UCU SHU Branch Committee
