Newsletter Editorial Board Elections


Following procedures outlined in the Policies and Procedures of the MIT Faculty Newsletter, an Institute-wide election for new members of the FNL Editorial Board will be held in the coming weeks. All regular faculty members and professors emeriti will be eligible to vote.

Nominees for the Editorial Board will be selected by the Newsletter Nominations Committee from submissions by the Institute faculty. Please submit all nominations to:, or via interdepartmental mail to FNL, 11-268. Deadline for all nominations is October 15.

Elections will be electronically based, with each eligible voter receiving an e-mail with a link to the voting site. Faculty and faculty emeriti will need to have MIT Web certificates installed on their computer, to allow for voter authentication. No record of individual voting preferences will be kept.

According to the FNL Policies and Procedures:

“The Nominations Committee will have the responsibility of recruiting and evaluating candidates for the Editorial Board, taking into account the need for representation from different Schools and sectors of the Institute, junior, senior, and retired faculty, male and female, underrepresented groups or faculty constituencies.”

“Candidates for the Editorial Board should give evidence of commitment to the integrity and independence of the faculty, and to the role of the Faculty Newsletter as an important voice of the faculty.”

We encourage the participation of everyone eligible to vote.
