In the renewed Operational Model, more unity is brought to the organisation of Faculties in that it prescribes for a number of items how the Faculties should be organised. Presently, not all Faculties meet all the criteria. After adopting the Operational Model and after an assessment is made of where the Faculty deviates from the model, the Executive Board will come to an agreement with each of the Faculties about the time-line within which they shall comply with the requirements of the Operational Model.

Participation in decision-making is organised in such a way that each administrative layer of our university has its own form of participation. At the level of the Faculty, the Facultaire Studentenraad (FSR) [Faculty Student Council] and the Component Committee consult with the Dean.
