Staff and student participation

Participation organs serve as bodies for consultation, information, communication and advice. They promote the welfare and interests of students and staff.

A number of bodies at the University have the right to consent and advise, the Faculty Councils on faculty matters and the University Council on University matters, for instance. Other bodies with these powers are the Local Consultative Body  and the Employee Councils.

University elections

The members of the various participation bodies are democratically elected. New university elections for student and staff members of the University Council, the Faculty Councils, the Employee Councils and the LUMC Student Council were held between 15 and 19 May 2017. View the results.
