The John Curtin Centre


The Secretariat conducts election processes for Staff and Student appointments to Council, Kalgoorlie Campus Council, Academic Board and other University committees or roles.

Elections are held as needed, dependent on terms of office and casual vacancies in membership that may arise from time to time.

When are elections held?

Generally, four weeks are allowed to conduct an election, including a Call for Nominations, Notice of Election and Voting Period. Some vacancies, e.g. student election to Council, are filled in accordance with the University Statute that sets out the election time frame.
