The Faculty Council (FR) consists of representatives of the academic staff, the administrative and support staff, and students. They are elected by and from their own sections for a period of two years, with the exception of students, who are elected for one year only. The members of the Faculty Council convene together with the Faculty Board about once every five weeks on Wednesday afternoon. These meetings are open to all faculty staff and students, who can attend these meetings as auditors.
Although the powers of the Faculty Council have changed following the introduction of the new MUB Act on modernisation of university organisations, its influence is still considerable: the Faculty Council has the power of consent concerning the faculty regulations, parts of the Education and Examinations Regulations, decisions concerning guidelines for the academic research, and decisions concerning integral policy notes about education, research and international affairs. In addition, the Faculty Council has the power of advice regarding, for example, appointments of professors and the faculty budget.
