          EHL Council

          Internal governance at Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne is conducted in a spirit of collegiality. It promotes the vision, mission and values of the School and ensures its implementation through participative processes, with different Councils, Committees and working groups.

          The creation of the EHL Council responds to one of EHL’s strategic priorities: quality, in that it will ensure the School’s alignment with quality standards relating to participation and governance, compliance with accreditation bodies and human capital development.

          Structure:

          EHL Council is a governing body that represents the whole EHL community, composed of a Coordinator and one representative per Council, each elected by the Council they represent. There are three constituents: student council, faculty council and staff council.

          Roles:

          Depending on the internal process being considered, the possible roles of the Councils are (individual or in combination):

          • Informative - is informed when a decision has been made
          • Consultative - is asked to give an opinion before the decision is made
          • Proactive - puts forward one or several proposals and suggests solutions
          • Collaborative - collaborates during the decision process
          • Participative - participates actively in the reflection leading to a recommendation or a decision

            International Advisory Board
