Join the council and help push our Faculty forward

30 March 2021

Do you want to participate in discussions and decisions about important policy choices and help our faculty move forward? Make yourself eligible for the Faculty Council or the University Council! This May, staff elections will be held for the Faculty Council, so now is the time to sign up as a candidate.

These statutory bodies consist of employees and students who critically monitor the Faculty Board (FB) and Executive Board (EB) respectively. They provide them with advice and sometimes also participate in decisions on important topics.

Faculty council: new faculty strategy on the way

It will be an interesting year for the Faculty Council (FC): the Faculty Board will lay the foundation for a new Faculty strategy. In addition, the aftermath of the corona crisis will be an important topic: what are the backlogs and how do we best deal with them as a faculty? And what lessons learnt from the pandemic can we incorporate into our education, research and other work? As a council member you can really make a difference in the coming two years. 

How do you get into the Faculty Council?

Interested? Sign up as a FC candidate now! You can still stand for election until April 16, so don't hesitate too long.
