Based on the Higher Education and Research Act (WHW) and the Electoral Regulations, you as a UG staff member or student are eligible to vote and be voted for in elections for the University Council and your Faculty Council or Employee Council.

The consultative participation bodies have been set up for the benefit of staff and students. By putting yourself forward as candidate in the elections, you can become a member of one of the councils and put topics that concern you or your network on the agenda.

University Council and faculty councils

Half of the members of the University Council and the faculty councils are University staff; the other half are students. They are elected from among and by the group they represent: staff or students of the University of Groningen.

Staff members are elected for two years and students for one year.
