University Council

The University Council acts as a liaison between the university, state, and community and supports the university by overseeing executive management, optimizing decision-making processes, and increasing operating efficiency.

The focus of the University Council lies in advising the university’s administration and central committees. This includes, but is not limited to, budgetary counsel, developmental and facility decisions, the creation, modification and dissolution of university organizational structures, the establishment and termination of study programs, and the formation of multidisciplinary bodies.

The activities of the University Council take place in close correspondence and correlation with university administration as well as our Academic Senate.

The University Council is comprised of:

• The Berlin Senate Member responsible for universities
• The head of the university
• Four external representatives from engaged on topics of culture, economy, and scientific pursuits and
• A faculty member of the university
