University elections were held between 16 and 19 April 2018. As a staff member or student you were able to vote for lists or candidates that represent you in the University Council (UC), the Faculty Councils and the Employee Councils. There was no election for the LUMC Student Council, because there were as many candidates as there were seats.
Leiden University regards co-participation as extremely important: the right to take part in discussions, and thus to have an influence on the decision-making. Co-participation leads to better decisions that have more support.
The elections are based on the electoral regulations. Leiden University has Electoral Regulations for the University Council and Electoral Regulations for Faculty and Staff Councils. These documents are in dutch only. The elections proceed according to a pre-arranged time schedule and use either the candidate system or the list system. There are also elections for student members of these councils.
