Put yourself forward as a LEG Faculty Council candidate!

Would you like to participate at the administrative level of the Faculty of Law, Economics and Governance? Do you wish to exert your influence on important decisions regarding education, research and business operations, and gain administrative experience?

Seize this opportunity and put yourself forward as a candidate for the Faculty Council (FR)! The FR is looking for motivated students who would like to join the debate about issues that will be the focus of our strategy in the coming years.

What does the Faculty Council do?

The FR comprises ten staff and ten student members. Elections for the student section take place every year. Student members receive a 0.15 FTE compensation (by way of a management participation grant); the chair and vice-chair of the student section get 0.2 FTE (also by way of a management participation grant).

As the Faculty Council, you will be advising the Faculty Board either upon their request or on the Council’s own initiative, on topics such as:

  • student housing, education spaces and study spots
  • internationalization of education
  • use of AI in education
  • the faculty’s budget
  • services provided by our faculty

Who can be a candidate?

Any student registered at one of the faculty degree programmes can put themselves forward as a candidate. You can either join an existing party in your own School or start your own party: everyone can become a candidate! It is important that you have a basic knowledge of the Dutch language (policy documents and meetings are Dutch).

How to become a candidate?

You can put yourself forward as a candidate from Tuesday 7 March to Thursday 11 April 2024, 5pm. Forms are on the Faculty Council's teams page.

For further questions, please contact the Faculty Office: rebo.Bestuurssecretariaat@uu.nl. The completed and signed candidacy forms (including the declarations of consent) must be submitted no later than Thursday 6 April, 16.00 hours, via e-mail. There is no deviating from this deadline!

The elections for the student sections of the LEG Faculty Council will take place from Monday 13 May 2024.
