The votes have been counted and the results of the University elections are in!
Elections were held for the UG University Council, faculty councils and employee councils. All parties campaigned at University buildings once again by handing out flyers and chatting with students. This shows that many students and staff are ready to shape the participation next year.
For almost all councils, the turnout rate was higher than in 2022 (students) and 2021 (employees). Among students, 7467 out of 33,847 students cast a vote for the University Council. A turnout of 22.06% (20.55% in 2022). Among employees, 3067 out of 8003 employees cast a vote for the University Council. A turnout of 38.32% (37.67% in 2021).
The University Council is the consultative participation body of the UG, consisting of 24 seats. One half of the Council comprises UG staff members and the other half are student members. As from 1 September 2022, the distribution of seats will be as follows:
SOG: 5 seats (1 less than 2022)
Lijst Calimero: 5 seats ( 1 more than 2022)
De Vrije Student: 2 seats (equal to 2022)
