the University Senate. The Secretary of the Faculty shall coordinate the
elections of faculty to elective committees. The secretary shall arrange
for the filling of vacancies on elected committees and councils by notifying
the next eligible candidate, determined in descending order of the number
of votes received in the most recent election for the relevant committee
or council. If no eligible candidate is available to fill the vacancy,
the Senate Executive Committee, with advice and recommendations from the
