University Council

Below you see an overview of the students currently representing DOPE in the Unversity Council.

We, Niels van der Sangen, Maaike Trân, Laurens Bierens, Noud Alberts and Bart Dings, are proud to represent DOPE in the University Council. The University Council is the most important participatory body of Maastricht University and consists of 9 student members and 9 staff members. The council has authority with regard to, among other things, the institutional plan, the students’ charter, administrative and management regulations, the maintenance of student facilities, the establishment and discontinuation of degree programmes, and regulations relating to health, safety and wellbeing. The council also has advisory functions, for example with regard to the budget, the establishment of legal entities, financial participation in UM Holding BV, and restricting first enrolments according to available teaching capacity.

The DOPE fraction is working hard to bargain on behalf of ordinary students. Our main focus is the improvement of the quality of education at Maastricht University. Last year this has been especially important since the University Council has an important role in the establishment of the Quality Agreements.

Most meetings of the University Council are open to the public and we really value your input. Please contact DOPE or one of the individual members if you want to make your voice heart at Maastricht University.
