What we represent

The Faculty Council (FC) represents the faculty’s students and employees. As part of the participative management approach in the faculty, the FC and Faculty Board work and collaborate on issues that are important for transparent, inclusive, and optimized faculty management. This is the reason why the FC consists of students and staff.  Depending on the issue, the FC sometimes just advises the FB while in other instances approval needs to be given by the FC.

Some of the issues that are on the table are amongst others;

As a FC we are critical and sometimes play the role of devil’s advocate. This approach encourages all involved to consider different approaches to solving a problem, process, goals, etc. Furthermore, It is paramount that the voices of all students and staff are heard, acknowledged and issues tabled and addressed. Therefore, the FC invites all to raise concerns on faculty issues and/or make suggestions or put new ideas/initiatives on the table. The Presidium of the Faculty Council consisted of a chairman (Bram Schouwstra), a vice-chairman (Jan den Uijl), and a secretary (Bert Geerdink)

For questions, advice, suggestions, etc., you can approach any of the members of the FC or send a mail to fc-st@utwente.nl
