Senate

The Senate is the university's top decision-making body on academic matters. The Senate consists of vice-rectors, deans, and institute directors, one faculty member to be elected by faculty members from each faculty for three years, and up to three directors to be selected from among the directors of vocational colleges. The secretary general attends senate meetings and acts as a rapporteur without voting rights. The university student representative can participate in meetings other than academic promotion and appointment issues as non-voters. The Senate convenes at the urging of the rector at least twice in each academic year.

The duties and powers of the Senate are as follows:
  • To decide on the strategic plan in universities without a university council,
  • To issue the regulations of the university under the provisions of this law,
  • To decide to propose the establishment of faculties, institutes, research institutes, and conservatories within the university,
