Antwerp should be mentioned independently, as it is a confederation of three university institutes growing toward one single university. The Academic Profession in the Two Communities of Belgium 27 The Legal Framework for Universities Very soon after having acquired its new legislative powers in matters of education, the Flemish government put higher education on the political agenda. After an informal but intense concertation of the minister of education with the rectorates of the Flemish universities, and inspired by the Dutch reforms, the new university bill was approved by the Flemish Parliament on June 12, 1991, soon followed by a similar law for nonuniversity higher education (July 13, 1994).

The nonuniversity sector at present has two main subdivisions: the HOKT and the HOLT. The one-cycle, or short-type (HOKT), programs require three years. The HOLT, with two cycles (four to five years), is intended to be of academic level but with a vocational and application bias; industrial engineers, interpreters, and licentiates in commercial sciences are its typical graduates. In addition to the titles of lector and work-leader, which do not require a doctorate, staff can, in principle, hold the same titles as in universities.

In some universities, such as Ghent and Brussels, the “association of professors” holds some of the seats. In others such as K. U. Leuven there is a tradition that academic representation is only done by the powerful group of the deans. In the Flemish university environment there are a wide range of professional organizations. But they only have a limited influence. They are organized within the university and therefore often lack an active national covering and coordination. Within the universities, there may be two rival organizations: One includes the assistant academic personnel; the other is only open to the higher ranks of the tenured staff.
