Participative decision-making at Tilburg University

Students and employees contribute to thinking, discussing, and deciding on Tilburg University’s policies.

At a central level, this happens in the University Council and, at a decentralized level, in School Councils and Divisional commissions. The members of the councils and commissions are elected.

In addition, the Executive Board consults with the University Labor Representation Board on all legal status issues. Representatives of the trade unions are members of the University Labor Representation Board.

How does participation work at our university?


Every year there are elections for the participation at our university.
