Faculty and Staff Council


The Faculty and Staff Council supports EUTOPIA in the development of the alliance’s strategy by offering the view of staff members of the member institutions.

The Faculty and Staff Council advises the alliance, through the Board of Presidents, on all aspects of the alliance’s activities but particularly covering implementation of activities pertaining to education, research and innovation, and the development of collaborative services.

The members of the Faculty and Staff Council are nominated by the Presidents of each member institution. Each member institution nominates three members of the Council. Members include both academic staff and representatives from administrative services.

The Faculty and Staff Council elects from among its members a Chair and Vice Chair for a period of two years.
