Every decision and change management process is handled by advisory boards, which promotes transparency and traceability, and ensures that all parties concerned are involved from the start.
The Study and Teaching Board (formerly Academic Affairs Board/Vorstand Lehre), a small executive panel that meets six times per year and as necessary, convenes ad hoc task forces to handle current issues and report on the implementation of solution strategies.
The Study and Teaching Board consists of seven Vice Deans Academic and Student Affairs of the Schools (transitional arrangement during the School foundation phase), the Dean of Studies of the TUM Campus Straubing, one representative from the Research Associates’ Council, one representative of the Degree Program Management Committee, one representative of the Institute for LifeLong Learning, and three student representatives. The board is chaired by the Senior Vice President for Academic and Student Affairs. All activities in the area of study and teaching come together in the Study and Teaching Board.
