Have a say on the faculty? Run for Faculty Council! (21 and 22 March)

13 March 2023

Would you like to have a say in the direction of the Faculty of Humanities? Then put yourself forward as a candidate for the Faculty Council on 21 and 22 March. The elections are in April, simultaneously with the elections for the Faculty Council’s student section and the University Council elections.

We’re looking for nine staff members for the staff delegation who want to have a say in important topics, such as the education and examination regulations (OER), the retaking of satisfactory marks, diversity, workload and the organisation of institutes and programmes.


Staff members of the Faculty of Humanities (both Leiden and The Hague), can submit their candidacy on 21 and 22 March 2023. To do so, fill in the form Candidate Personnel System. Make sure that at least five colleagues sign your nomination and send it to stembureau@hum.leidenuniv.nl. You can also print and fill in the form. Then you can hand it in to Marjon Smeets, chair of the election committee.
