The University Forum

The employees and students of the UvA, who have been invited at random to join the University ForumExternal link, are shaping the intellectual discussion about the UvA. The discussions within the forum are intended to provide the Executive Board (CvB) and the faculty deans with input on the development of strategies and long-term plans, which will in turn be discussed by the standing advisory committees and representative advisory bodies.

Open and transparent

All members of the University Forum are equal, and open and honest discussion are of prime importance. The members have been invited at random in order to grant both the employees and the students a voice that might otherwise remain in the background. The meetings are open to the public, and anyone may attend as an observer.
