Academic Senate

The Academic Senate is the university’s top self-governing representative academic body. Under existing legislation, it must have at least 15 members, of whom at least one-third must be students. Members of the Academic Senate are elected for four years in a secret ballot by their peers in the academic community.

The Academic Senate nominates a candidate for Rector to the President of the Republic, approves draft internal regulations, draft budgets, long-term plans, annual reports and other proposals submitted by the Rector. The Senate expresses its position on the rector’s nomination of members of the University Research Board, members of the Board of Trustees and members of the Rector’s Board (Vice-Rectors).
