Faculty Council

The Faculty Council is an important representative body of Erasmus School of Philosophy. The Faculty Council discusses the general affairs of the faculty with the dean. The dean informs the Faculty Council about the policy s/he implements and regarding policy intentions for education, research, finances, personnel and organisation.

The Faculty Council has the right of approval, information and advice. The Faculty Council has the right of approval regarding determining and changing the faculty regulations, components of the education and examination regulations and in the event of a proposed reorganisation.
