The Faculty Council of Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM) is an elected body that represents the interests of the RSM Community; employees (academic staff, administrative staff, PhD candidates), and students (bachelor and master). This Council advises the RSM Management Team on all issues pertaining to RSM’s educational and research activities, as well as its role in society at large.
The Faculty Council has selected a number of issues that are considered as deserving special attention. These focal issues include the quality of educational programmes and exams, diversity of gender and ethnicity, internal collaboration and cohesion, transparency and inclusiveness of hiring and promotion, sustainability, and facilitating the living conditions of international community members. For information about past and current issues, please visit our news page.
RSM’s Faculty Council formally convenes around ten times a year with the Vice Dean and the Director of Operations. These meetings are in principle public and can be attended by any interested RSM Community member (schedule: see right side bar on this page). Twice a year, the Council meets with the Dean.
The Faculty Council is permanently open to issues that are of general interest to the RSM Community. Students and employees are encouraged to flag relevant suggestions, incidents, and other events that can contribute to prioritizing issues and providing well-informed advice to the Management Team.
