University Council Duties

The University Council is a supportive and forward-thinking supervisory body of the University, made up of members who cannot be otherwise associated with the PLUS. This is to ensure an independent and unbiased external monitoring of the University and its institutions. The University Council is responsible in particular for the preparation of the Development Plan, the Organisational Plan and the performance agreement, as well as for the issuing the rules of procedure for the Rectorate; the election and dismissal of the rector and the vice-rectors; for the management of the University’s financial affairs by means of approval and consent reservations and for general legal and economic supervision combined with reporting duties to the Federal Ministry for Education, Science and Research.


University Council Members

The University Council consists of seven members, who shall be past or present holders of responsible positions, especially in academic, cultural or business life, and whose exceptional knowledge and experience are such as to enable them to contribute to the attainment of the objectives and the fulfilment of the duties of the university. Members of the federal or provincial governments, the National Council, the Federal Council or any other popular representative body, and officers of political parties or persons who have exercised such functions within the past four years shall be excluded from membership of the University of Salzburg’s University Council. Three members were selected by the Senate (Schulze, Tockner, Wiederin) and three members were appointed by the federal government on the proposal of the federal minister (Ambros, Hörl, Schneider).
