Committees and senior officers
Administrative tasks at FAU
The primary tasks of the university are teaching and research. However, to ensure that an institution with approximately 12,000 employees and 38,771 students can function properly now and in the future, decisions must be made strategically and in the most democratic way possible. It is for this reason that FAU has established numerous bodies in the form of councils, boards of trustees, committees and representative units. Information on the members of these bodies and their various tasks are outlined on the following pages.
