The Senate is the parliament of the university. It solely deals with all matters regarding the areas of research, teaching and study, that concern the whole university. Organizing the administration is not part of its tasks. The senate approves the election of the rectorate, comments on the reports of the rector, gives recommendations about objective agreements of the university and resolves all regulations that apply to the whole university. link
