Female representatives to the UMD Commission for Women are elected as follows:
In the event the Commission has not met the full complement of members as defined above, the Commission will consider the duly elected membership to be its total number of members for that year. The Commission may choose to elect additional members to serve as at large members.
The Commission for Women positions are two academic years in length and elections are held each spring (approximately half of the positions are elected each year). The Commission meets the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of each month from 12:00 to 1:30 PM, during the academic year. The expectations for service include attendance and active participation at Commission meetings, participation on two committees, attendance at and promotion of Commission functions, and responsiveness to constituency and to the broader population of women on the UMD campus. The time commitment comes to about 4-6 hours a month.
