Elections april 28 - april 30, 2021
The University Council consists of nine employees and nine students from the university. They are elected through annual (students) or biennial (employees) elections among all students and staff. The council is a serious interlocutor of the board and formally influences the policy and the state of affairs within the university.
The council reviews proposed decisions of the Executive Board and brings issues from within the organization to the Board’s attention. Where necessary, the Council will use its rights to correct the Board’s proposals or issue proposals of its own. In this way, the University Council contributes to a healthy and balanced distribution of interests and influence within the university.
