Chamber of universities
To ensure continuity, the chamber of universities generally carries out the duties of the former CRUS that are not explicitly assigned to another chamber. In particular, it ensures the exchange of information, harmonisation of academic procedures and definitions and appropriate division of duties among the universities and, in the framework of swissuniversities institutions, with the universities of applied sciences.
The voting members of the chamber of universities are the rectors and presidents of the ten cantonal universities and both Swiss federal institutes of technology. Led by the Board (president and two vice-presidents), the chamber works with the panels of swissuniversities, its own commissions, and the experts that it consults in various areas of responsibility and expertise.
