Student Perspective: no elections are required as there are more seats than candidates.
The University Council consists of nine employees and nine students from the university. They are elected through annual (students) or biennial (employees) elections among all students and staff. The council is a serious interlocutor of the board and formally influences the policy and the state of affairs within the university.
The council reviews proposed decisions of the Executive Board and brings issues from within the organization to the Board’s attention. Where necessary, the Council will use its rights to correct the Board’s proposals or issue proposals of its own. In this way, the University Council contributes to a healthy and balanced distribution of interests and influence within the university.
School (Faculty) Councils
The Faculty Council consists of employees and students from a School. The council represents the interests of students and employees in the field of education, research, policy and decision-making. To this end, it advises the Management Team, on request or otherwise, on matters and developments within the School. In addition, the council has the right of consent for matters such as the School’s regulations, part of the Education and Examination Regulations and the Strategic Plan. Each School at Tilburg University has its own Faculty Council.
Electoral Committee's Office
In accordance with article 3.1 of the Election regulations the Electoral committee consists of three to five members. The members and, if necessary, no more than three deputy members are appointed by the Executive Board of Tilburg University for a period of two years.
