Committees

The University Council has three committees:

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.

Administrative support

Support Office
Administrative support to the University Council is provided by the Staff Representation Office (Griffie Medezeggenschap, or MZ). The staff of this office are part of the Maastricht University Office (MUO), situated in the Support Office along with the office and secretariat of the university’s Executive Board.

Executive Secretary
The University Council’s executive secretary prepares memos received for the council’s meetings and is responsible for providing the council with administrative support. At the same time, the executive secretary provides administrative support to the Confidential Committee and the Presidium.

Staff Representation Office
Since 1 November 2012, the Staff Representation Office has been composed of the following staff members:

Betty Maessen (Executive Secretary and 1st contact person)
