Communication councils

The University of Copenhagen's overall inter-disciplinary communications council is known as KUSK - short for the University of Copenhagen’s Strategic Communication Council. The Council has a coordinating sub-committee called KUKK. Below, you can read more about them.

KUSK - The University’s Strategic Communication Council

The council advises the rector and prorectors and the senior management team on communication strategic issues and is to promote cross-organisational activities within the university's communication.

The council was established in the wake of an external report which concluded that the university should strengthen its internal and external communication and work more purposefully to increase the visibility of the university both nationally and internationally.

KUSK is chaired by the Prorector for Education, Lykke Friis. Members include the director of communication as well as one member from each faculty management appointed by the deans (typically the dean or the associate dean for external relations, communication etc.).

Meetings are held as required (approx. four times a year). Once a year, KUSK submits a brief report on its activities to senior management.
