Committee Status - May 2020

The decision has been taken to pause many university committees and working groups due to the ongoing pandemic.


Responsibility for the governance of the University rests with the University Court and the Senatus Academicus (Senate). To assist them in their work, the Court and Senate have each established committees, including three joint committees.
