The Board

Purpose and composition

The Board is the University’s highest authority, and its mandate is to safeguard the University of Copenhagen’s interests as a research and educational institution. Among other things, the Board determines the frameworks for the university's organisation and sets long-term goals for its activities and development.

The Board is made up of six external members and five internal members. The members serve on the Board for a four-year period from the date they join. This does not apply for student representatives, who are up for election every other year. Board meetings are held approx. eight times a year with the participation of the University's top management.
