University Electoral Assembly
The University Electoral Assembly was constituted as a new body in 2015 with the purpose of electing full-time University Board members. It consisted of members of the Senate and University Council.
The central task of the University Electoral Assembly is the election of the members of the University Board.
Half of the University Electoral Assembly consists of members of the Senate and the other half is made up of members of the University Council. The external members of the University Council as well as the voting members in the Senate are entitled to vote. The votes of the external members of the University Council are weighted accordingly so that the votes of the members of the two halves are in equal proportion to each other.
