Fellows of the University

The Fellows of European-American University are charged with various responsibilities for administration and governance, being appointed by the Chancellor of the University as its Chief Officer and Principal.

The structure of the University is as follows:

  • The Executive Council is the senior management body of the University, consisting of the Chancellor as Chairman and others appointed by him.
  • The Court is the executive body of the University, presided over by the Chancellor, with power to make recommendations on any aspect of the University’s operations.
  • The Academic Executive Council (“Council”) of the University is its advisory body regarding all academic affairs.
  • The Senate of the University is responsible for teaching and research and for the executive operations of the University so far as academic affairs are concerned.
  • The Academic Assembly of the University consists of the combined Senate and Academic Executive Council.
  • Boards of Studies of the University are formed in given subject areas and can be constituted on a per-student basis where interdisciplinary work or work in unusual subject areas is contemplated. They may include Fellows of the University and/or external subject specialists.

The body of Fellows of European-American University supports not only the operations and programmes of European-American University but those of its sister institution the Western Orthodox University.

All Fellows and specialists contribute their tutorial and examining expertise on a consultancy basis, being based at their own institutions or centres in various countries. No Fellow or member of faculty is an employee of the University.

Not all Fellows undertake teaching duties for the University. Some are associated scholars or researchers, or hold an administrative position. The University also appoints distinguished persons to Honorary Fellowship, which may or may not be associated with teaching duties.
