Department Chairs

Department Chairs

The office of department chair (head of department) is important for ensuring the quality of study and teaching. Each department chair is a full-time lecturer elected for a period of two to four years to manage the following tasks:

  • adapting courses to fit the requirements set forth in the University's academic regulations
  • ensuring that courses are competitive and correspond to the University's desired image
  • ensuring that students can complete their studies within the standard period of study
  • conducting academic evaluations and taking students' assessments into account
  • elaborating proposals on changes and improvements to teaching and the curricula of the department's programs of study
  • drawing up a teaching report - annually or every second year - which must be submitted to the Department Committee and University Management Committee
  • ensuring that students receive adequate supervision.
