What will I be doing?

The student members of the University Council and the student and staff members of the Faculty and Employee Councils keep a critical eye on how the University is run, give solicited and unsolicited advice and help reach decisions on important topics. The University Council does this at the level of the Executive Board, the Faculty Councils at the faculty level and the Employee Councils at the level of the University's central services. For more information on what these organs do and their contact details, see the information on the organisational structure of the University.

Why should I stand for election?

A position on one of the University's participation organs doesn't just give you the opportunity to represent student and staff interests, but it also promotes good administration. In addition, you get the chance to develop your networking, negotiation, argumentation and policy-appraisal skills. And you're first to hear about the latest developments at the University!

How do I stand for election?

To stand for election, fill in the relevant form and submit it to the Central Polling Office on 5 or 6 March. For more information on standing for election and the required forms, see the student and staff participation website or contact the relevant polling station.
