The FUOC's statutes and the law by which the University was founded specify that the FUOC should include an advisory body, which should seek to ensure that Catalan society is broadly represented in the way the UOC is run. In addition to its services, offering advice and a connection with society, the FUOC Advisory Board must provide information on the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya budget, its programmes, and the appointment of its president.
The members of the Board include, alongside the president of the UOC and the CEO of the FUOC, representatives from the Catalan Parliament, from Catalan university bodies, from business organizations and unions, from UOC Alumni, as well as other figures from the world of research and culture. As such it provides a broad representation of Catalan society, which the UOC, in its duties as a public service, is proud to serve.
The chair of the Advisory Board is appointed by the FUOC Board of Trustees from among the Advisory Board's members.
The secretary of the Board is the FUOC's secretary, who has an advisory role but casts no vote.
* In accordance with the Government of Catalonia agreements dated 28 December 1995 and 16 July 2019.
