2021 Elections (Ended)

The next University elections will be held from 17-21 May 2021 and are for the student and staff sections of the University Council and the Faculty Councils as well as the University of Groningen Employee Councils.

Consultative participation councils are of great importance. By voting, you can exercise your influence in a variety of areas within the UG. The University Council discusses topics that are important for the entire University community, such as budgets, teaching, research, student facilities and the University’s strategic agenda.

The Faculty Councils discuss topics such as faculty budgets, Faculty regulations, Teaching and Examination Regulations and a variety of teaching matters. The Employee Councils have a say in matters concerning the various service units of the University, such as the Office of the University, the CIT and the University Library.
