Faculty Council

The Faculty Council supports the university president's long-term strategic work and provides guidance on issues related to scientific activities at Karolinska Institutet.

The president presides over council meetings in the presence of the university vice president and university director. The president may, after consulting with the council, permit other individuals to attend council meetings for a short or longer period. The council consists of nine permanently employed professors, two more junior teachers, and three student representatives.
