is a standing council of the University administration. It serves in an
informational and advisory capacity to the president and bears responsibility
and accountability to members of the PAT staff, which elects its members.
PAT Council election process?
The PAT Council holds elections each fall for ten (10-11) districts.
All campus departments are divided into twenty (20) districts, with one
PAT staff member serving as the representative for each district.
PAT Council representatives are elected for a two-year term from a district
to represent the district. In September, nominations are solicited from
each district. In October, one person is elected to represent each district
from those nominated. There is an additional PAT At-Large seat, representing
all PAT staff on the council.
