Committee meetings

In collaboration with the Executive Board, these committees convene to consider policy proposals that have been submitted to the University Council for advice or endorsement. Their purpose is to prepare particular themes in smaller groups before these are put as items onto the agenda of the council’s plenary meetings with the Executive Board. The committees then provide the University Council with advice to inform its decision making. The definitive decision-making process occurs in the council’s plenary meetings with the Executive Board.
