University council advises rectorate
The TU Dortmund University Council has a total of eight external members. The council has existed since the reform of the Higher Education Act in 2007. It advises the rector’s office and supervises its management. The tasks of the University Council include the election of the rector, the approval of the university development plan and business plan as well as the establishment of the annual financial statements. The members are appointed by the Ministry of Culture and Science for a term of five years after the Senate has confirmed the list.
