Advisory council

Each of the Institutes in the Faculty of Humanities has an Advisory Council (Adviesraad or Raad van Advies). The Council consists of at least seven and up to thirteen Institute members. The Institute Director ensures that the Council has access to information on all matters concerning the Institute.

The Advisory Council meets minimally once per term, and provides the Institute management with solicited and unsolicited advice. The Council welcomes input from all institute members.

Members are appointed for (renewable) periods of two years each by the Dean of Humanities, upon recommendation by the Academic Director, with due regard for balanced representation. One seat on the Council is held by a PhD student.
