University Council

University Council

The dual decision-making body at a local level is the University Council. Its tasks and duties are characterised by the organisation of new tuition courses, updating of course contents, adaptation of academic and examination regulations, the right to propose candidates for nomination as honorary senators and election of the President, Vice-President and the Dean. The DHBW location and its participating training companies/social institutions work together here in a cooperative spirit and on an equal footing.
