Örebro University Board

The university board is a university’s highest decision-making body. Under the Higher Education Act, the board shall supervise all of the university’s operations and assume responsibility for the fulfilment of its mandate. Eight members, including the chair of the board, are appointed by the government and represent public interests. Full members of the board are also the vice-chancellor, three teacher representatives and three student representatives. Staff representatives (union representatives) have the right to attend and speak at the university board meetings.
