Administrative organisation of the University of Groningen
At the head of the University of Groningen is the ‘Executive Board’ who is responsible for controlling the ten faculties. At the head of each faculty is the “Faculty Board”, who is responsible for running the faculty. The faculties are divided into different programmes headed by a programme director.
As shown in the figure below shows, there are several bodies that advise the Executive Board, the Faculty Board and the Programme Directors. These representative bodies consist of both teachers and students (except for the student member of the Faculty Board). These bodies are the faculty, the programme committees, the student member of the Faculty Board and the University Council.
