Boards and Committees

The Faculty’s boards and committees form a part of academic self-governance. Academic self-governance is a basic component of the university’s functioning.

The Faculty Council is the highest decision making body of the Faculty of Biology. Members are elected every 3 years (students annually). It meets 4-6 times per semester and is chaired by the Dean. All members of the Faculty can find the minutes of the public part of the Faculty Council Meeting in the Faculty SharePoint (see homepage for link).
