University Council 2022 - 2023

The University Council is the central participation body of the University of Twente. It has a say in UT policy at central level. The council as a whole consults with the Executive Board in a public meeting every meeting cycle. All University Council meetings are structured in a 7-week meeting cycle, see the meeting schedule. A report of what is discussed during the plenary meeting of the University Council and the Executive Board can be read in the University Council newsletter.

On this website, you can find the meeting documents

In addition, the committee meetings are held with the portfolio holders (Executive Board members) separately. Within the University Council, a structure is in place whereby in preparation for the internal meeting, the topics are divided by content among three committees: the Committee on Education, Research and Students - pfh. Tom Veldkamp, the Committee on Finance, Personnel Policy and Management - pfh. Machteld Roos and the Committee on Strategy and Internationalisation - pfh. Vinod Subramaniam.

Every year, nine new studens join the University Council and every two years, nine new employees, so the Council's composition changes every year. And each council member also represents her or his party and this year the following staff and student parties are involved: Campus Coalition, List Weppelman and the student parties UReka and DAS. More information is available on the elections website.
