Council elections

University Council Election 2020

Monash University Council is the governing body of Monash University, established by the Monash University Act 2009. As part of the requirements under the Act, Monash University are required to elect two positions to Council – an elected Student member position and an elected Staff member position.

The Council passed a resolution earlier this year to set down the election process and rules, appoint a Returning Officer and establish the timeline for the election of these positions pursuant (and in addition to) the provisions in section 2A of the Monash University (Council) Regulations.

In line with this resolution, the 2020 University Council election process has now concluded. The following candidates were elected:

University Council Staff Member Elected Position

Following the close of the ballot on Tuesday 13 October and upon counting the votes cast, I declared Cathy Rojas (View candidate statement) to be elected to the Staff member position on University Council.

University Council Student Member Elected Position:

Following the close of the ballot on Tuesday 13 October and upon counting the votes cast, I declared James McDonald (View candidate statement) to be elected to the Student member position on University Council.
