Participation in decision making
The opinions of the students and staff at the Erasmus School of History, Culture and Communication are highly valued. Therefore, there are several ways in which students and staff members can participate in processes of decision making.
For one, they can attend meetings of the Faculty Council, or become a member of the council. The Faculty Council is the ESHCC’s representative advisory body. The Faculty Council discusses the general running affairs of the school with the dean. In addition, the dean informs the council about any policies that he carries out, policy proposals that concern teaching and research, and policy proposals in the field of finances and organisation.
Furthermore, each department has a Programme Committee. The Programme Committee is an advisory body that plays an important role in the systematic evaluation of the teaching provided by each Department. The Programme Committee has the duty of providing advice, both solicited and unsolicited, to the Head of Department, the Director of Education and the Dean.
