Results of the Faculty Council elections!

From May 13 through May 15, students were able to cast their vote for the university's participation councils. The Faculty Council (FR) is the participation body for students and faculty staff. Wondering who was elected? Then read on quickly!

What does the council council do? VERANDEREN

The FR consists of 24 council members: 12 staff members and 12 student members. The FR consults with the Faculty Board on faculty policy in the areas of education, research, finance, personnel and organization. The council members meet six times a year with the Faculty Board and in the weeks preceding these meetings there are committee meetings. This keeps them well informed of faculty plans and makes them an important interlocutor for the Faculty Board. In addition to the Faculty Council, discussions at the university level take place within the University Council.
