Quality council

Each department has a quality council which is appointed by and reports to the heads of each department. The quality councils have replaced the former department councils and are responsible for quality monitoring regarding teaching, research and the community impact of the department. The councils' duties include the organisation of the quality monitoring of the departments and to compile reports on how the quality work is developed.

Quality councils consist of five people. Two are chosen from among each department's teaching and research staff, two from the students of the department and each department's amanuensis. The council's mandate period is two academic years.

The head of department appoints student members after consulting the student union. A staff member serves as the chairperson of the council.
