Governing Board 

The UIS is the statistical office of UNESCO and the United Nations’ depository for global statistics in the fields of education, science and technology, culture, and communication.


The Institute is an autonomous organization within UNESCO. This functional autonomy safeguards the Institute’s independence in developing and disseminating the accurate and policy-relevant data needed in today’s increasingly complex and changing social, political and economic environments.


The UIS has its own Governing Board that consists of 12 international experts, representing users and producers of statistics from different regions and international organizations.  


The Board's primary tasks are to define UIS policy and broad functions, as well as to approve the yearly Institutional programme and budget. The Board also monitors, evaluates and provides guidance on the Institute's operations.
