University Council

The University Council of the Europa-Universität Flensburg consists of a total of five voluntary members, elected by the Senate of the Europa-Universität Flensburg and appointed by the Ministry of Education and Science of the Land of Schleswig-Holstein for a term of four years. Four of its members elect a fifth member, who, having also been appointed by the Ministry, takes the chair of the University Council.

In the context of the amendment of the statute governing higher education institutions and the University Hospital Schleswig-Holstein (HSG), the Landtag had decided in October 2013 to abolish the inter-university university council of the Land of Schleswig-Holstein and that each respective university should establish its own university council.


29th December 2020 to 28th December 2024

The chairmanship is currently vacant.
