Participation in decision-making

Students and staff participate in decision-making at faculty and central level through student councils and works councils.

The Central Works Council is elected from the works councils of the seven faculties and the Joint Works Council for executive staff and shared service units. The Central Student Council is partly directly elected and partly selected from the faculty student councils.

With the Executive Board, central councils discuss matters affecting the university as a whole or a majority, such as housing projects, finance and education and research.
