Governing and Executive bodies

The GOVERNING COUNCIL is the corporate governing body responsible for controlling and monitoring ANECA's activities, and for maintaining stakeholders in higher education informed of these, as provided for in the Statutes and other current legislation.

The Council has nine members. Participation by major stakeholders has been encouraged in higher education through representatives from different affiliated bodies: students, the Conference of the Social Bodies of Spanish Public Universities, trade unions and the national Confederation of Business Organisations, as well as a Regional Administration representative with responsibilities in university education.
This new composition reflects the significance of stakeholders.

The DIRECTOR  is a unipersonal executive body tasked with the ordinary management of ANECA. The Director is appointed by the Governing Council, thus further strengthening independence.

José Arnáez Vadillo  was appointed Director of ANECA on 24 February 2017
