Committee Administration

Committees of the University of Vechta

Committees - Why at all?


Universities organize themselves and their members. This is also called "academic self-administration". For this reason, important decisions on research, teaching and study are made in the committees. For example, the university structure and development planning are discussed, personnel development (e.g. appointments to professorships) and matters relating to examination law are decided. Which committees advise and / or decide on which matters can be viewed on the following pages.

In most committees, all status groups are represented in order to be able to take their interests into account. The four status groups are:

  • University teachers
  • Scientific, artistic staff and teachers for special tasks ("central building")
  • Students (incl. enrolled doctoral candidates, unless scientific/artistic MA, LfbA)
  • Employees in technology and administration (MTV Group)

The University Council has the task of advising the Presidium and the Senate.
