University Board

As the strategic governing body of Bern University of Applied Sciences BFH, the University Board is responsible to the Canton for the University’s positioning and profile. Based on the performance mandate from the cantonal government, it decides on the strategy and budget of BFH. The University Board monitors the application of the performance mandate and is responsible for budgetary compliance.


The University Board comprises seven members elected by the cantonal government (who are not part of BFH), the Rector, and one representative each from the teaching staff and the student body. In addition, the University Executive Board and the Education Department of Canton Bern each have an advisory representative on the committee.
