The members of the Convent of Councillors are elected for the term of three years in an open vote by the RSU Senate. Considering the traditions of the university, the status of a councillor is regarded an expression of honour towards the elected members. The meetings of the Convent are chaired by the Convent’s chairperson appointed by the Senate.
