Board of Governors
Rector, Dean, Bursar… The university world comprises a number of people who are in charge of the operation of the institution. The general public is aware of the existence of some of them as well as of what is entailed in their work. However, there are other bodies at the University whose activities are not that much noticeable; however, such bodies play a crucial role in the management of the University although they do not participate in the day-to-day management of the institution. The Board of Governors is one of them.
The Board of Governors is a collegiate body. As required by law, the Board members are, for example, holders of public office, representatives of state administration and of regional administration authorities, employers and university graduates.
The Board gives its consent particularly to transfer of ownership rights over movable and immovable property and to the establishment of real burdens. It also approves of the Budget and Strategic Plan of the higher education institution and also discusses Annual Reports issued by the University. Therefore, the Board can be considered as sort of a “safeguard” when important decisions are made, especially those concerning financial affairs.
