The University Council supports the university management and performs the functions of a supervisory board. For example, it elects the President and the Vice Presidents, makes decisions on the university’s constitution and university development planning, and ascertains whether the objectives set in the agreement on objectives have been met.
In addition to the elected members of the Senate, the University Council comprises ten individuals from science, culture and, more particularly, from industry and professional sectors. The members of the university management, the university’s Women's Affairs Officer and a representative of the Bavarian State Ministry of Science and the Arts attend the meetings of the University Council in an advisory capacity.
