But what exactly is elected?
- The Student Council of the FIN (FaRaFIN) consists of 7 elected student members and, if necessary, even representatives. The Fachschaftsrat is the representation of students for students at the faculty. The members of the student council are the contact persons if there are bigger or smaller problems with the studies or with the lecturers, they collect exams and examination tasks, organize parties, are present at the Open University Day, take care of the first semester students, ...
- The Faculty Council of FIN (FakRa) is composed of 2 student representatives, faculty staff and professors. Decisions are made here, e.g. on changes to the study regulations, use of faculty funds, appointment of professors, etc. The Faculty Council is the decision-making body at the faculty level.
- The Student Council (StuRa) is the representation of all students, so it is not limited to FIN. Fifteen student representatives are elected through a list election. To ensure that our wishes in university-wide matters are not neglected, it is important that students from our faculty are represented in this body.
- The Senate is the most important body and the final decision-making authority of the university. You can say that the Senate is the equivalent of the Faculty Council, but at the level of the entire university. This is where the fate of the university is determined: Decisions are made on budgetary matters, study regulations and personnel matters (appointment of professors). The Senate thus decides on all academic matters of the University (unless they are regulated by law or assigned to another body, e.g. a Faculty Council). Senate commissions prepare decisions of the Senate, i.e. the actual work takes place in the commissions, and decisions are then made in the Senate. There are 4 student representatives in the senate, who are elected via a list election.
