University Management

As defined by the Uni­versity Act 2002, WU's man­age­ment con­sists of three ma­jor gov­ern­ing bod­ies: the Uni­versity Board, the Rector's Coun­cil, and the Sen­ate.

  • The Uni­versity Board is a su­per­vis­ory board with five mem­bers and meets four to six times a year. The Uni­versity Board acts as WU’s su­per­vis­ory board.

  • The Rector's Coun­cil is the main ex­ec­ut­ive body at WU, lead­ing the in­sti­tu­tion. It con­sists of five mem­bers, the Rector and four Vice-Rect­ors.

  • The Rector co­ordin­ates the Rector's Coun­cil and is its spokes­per­son.

  • The Sen­ate is the main in­sti­tu­tion of shared gov­ernance at WU and meets three times dur­ing the semester. The Sen­ate con­sists of 26 mem­bers, rep­res­ent­ing full pro­fess­ors, ju­nior fac­ulty, stu­dents, and ad­min­is­trat­ive staff.
