The senate is a central body within Friedrich Schiller University. It is thus responsible for all academic concerns and is involved in all important decisions, such as the presidential elections and deselections, or the election and deselection of university council members. The senate appoints the university's vice presidents as well as the equal opportunity commissioner. It may also decide upon the university's constitutional order as well as upon other legal regulations, and it passes university guidelines as well as it comments on all issues relevant to this university.
The senate is comprised of 21 members with voting power: next to the university's president (as the senate's chairman), there are eleven professors, four students, three academic staff members, as well as two members from the technical and administrative departments. Other members are the university's deans, the vice presidents, and the chancellor, as advisory members of the body.
