University Council 28th September 2018
House Rules and Charter
There has been a change in the General House Rules regarding non-permitted commercial activities on campus. From now on it is no longer allowed to use Tilburg University facilities for commercial activities such as tutoring. Furthermore it is no longer allowed to record lecturers without their permission or to sell these recordings. Front agrees that Tilburg University facilities should only be used for educational purposes but also wants to know if sanctions are applied and which sanctions are applied when the above mentioned rules are violated. The Executive Board has promised to look into this.
Self-Evaluation Report ITK
Every five years the University is accredited by the NVAO (Nederlands-Vlaamse accreditatieorganisatie). The Self-Evaluation Report describes how Tilburg University safeguards the realization of its vision of good education and how they are continuously working on development and improvement. Front made some comments in the OO&I committee, all these comments were added in the renewed document, so Front advised positively on this document.

The Marap is the Financial Management Report that is part of the Financial Planning and Control Cycle 2018 and provides insight into the financial development during the year in comparison with the budget 2018. Front advised positively on this document.
Budget request Olympia
The budget request concerns two separate requests with regards to technical replacements.
