Com­mit­tees

There are many dif­fer­ent com­mit­tees at our uni­ver­si­ty. You have prob­a­bly already heard of some of them, such as the fac­ul­ty coun­cil or the sen­ate. But there are sev­er­al oth­er com­mit­tees in which stu­dents can become active and rep­re­sent their own inter­ests and those of their fel­low students.

Below you can see the uni­ver­si­ty com­mit­tees in which stu­dent mem­bers are rep­re­sent­ed. If you are inter­est­ed in becom­ing active your­self or would like more infor­ma­tion about a par­tic­u­lar com­mit­tee, you are wel­come to con­tact the chair of the stu­dent par­lia­ment (vor­sitz-studieren­den­par­la­mentvs.hs-heilbronn.de) write.

In addi­tion, any stu­dent can turn to it if there is a sus­pi­cion that an organ of the stu­dent body is not act­ing law­ful­ly. There­fore, the com­mis­sion has also been assigned the task of audit­ing elections.

The Arbi­tra­tion Com­mis­sion is the judi­cial body of the con­sti­tut­ed stu­dent body. If there is a dis­pute between the exec­u­tive (AStA) and the leg­isla­tive (Stu­Pa), which the two par­ties can­not resolve inde­pen­dent­ly, its task is to arbi­trate the dispute.

The Sch­liKo con­sists of 2 stu­dent mem­bers* and the chan­cel­lor of the university.
