The University Council promotes the interests of all employees and students with the Executive Board of Utrecht University. As a regular discussion partner for the Board, the council contributes greatly to the course of the university as a whole, as well as the state of affairs within the university. The University Council critically monitors the Executive Board, provides it with solicited and unsolicited advice and jointly decides with the Board on important matters. The University Council is made up of twelve members of staff and twelve students from all faculties and support services. Every year, students elect new representatives, while members of staff do the same once every two years. Your vote counts!
