Further Information

The Faculty Board

The Faculty Board of the Faculty of Economics and Social Sciences is comprised of a full-time Dean and four Associate Deans, one being the Associate Dean Academic. The Faculty Board is the governing body of the academic self-administration and responsible for all matters of the Faculty unless otherwise stipulated by the Landeshochschulgesetz (LHG) [State law on universities and colleges]. This applies in particular to the preparation of structural and development plans, the drafting of business plans, decisions on the use of funds by the faculty, proposals for functional chair titles and evaluation matters. Advisory members are the Heads of Department and the two managing directors of the faculty.

Full-time Dean and Associate Deans

The Full-time Dean represents the faculty externally and internally. He is chairman of the Faculty Board and the Faculty Council of the Faculty of Economics and Social Sciences as well as member of the Senate at the University of Tübingen. One of the Associate Deans is the Dean’s deputy. The Faculty Council selects the Full-time Dean on recommendation of the Vice Chancellor and the Associate Deans on recommendation of the Full-time Dean for a period of six years.

Associate Dean(s) Academic

In consultation with the relevant Academic Affairs Committee, the Associate Deans Academic are elected for a period of six years by the Faculty Council from the ranks of the Faculty’s full-time professors. There are two Academic Affairs Committees in the Faculty of Economics and Social Sciences (one for the School of Business and Economics and one for the Department of Social Sciences). Both Associate Deans Academic are members of the Faculty Board, one as Associate Dean Academic of the Faculty and the other as Deputy Dean. Within the framework of the Dean’s overall responsibility, the Associate Deans Academic carry out day-to-day duties related to matters of teaching and study. In particular, they are expected to ensure a proper and complete range of courses, and they prepare resolutions on curricula and exam regulations. Furthermore, they coordinate the Student Advisory Service and provide assistance in case of complaints regarding the course of studies and examinations.

 

Faculty Council

 

The Faculty Council is the decision-making body of the Faculty and advises on all matters of fundamental importance to the Faculty. Approval by the Faculty Council is required for structure and development plans, the formation, change and termination of faculty facilities, and examination and study regulations.

The Dean chairs the Faculty Council; all members of the Faculty Board and the Heads of Department are members of the Faculty Council by virtue of their office. In addition, five university lecturers, three academic staff, three non-academic staff members and, as a general rule, five student representatives are members of the Faculty Council. The student representatives are elected by the students of the Faculty for a period of one year. All other groups elect their representatives for a period of six years each.

The Institute Directors and the Equal Opportunities Officer take part in the meetings in an advisory capacity, as do student representatives from those subjects that are not represented by elected student representatives.

The meetings are scheduled for the winter semester 2018/19 on 29.10.18, 03.12.108 and 04.02.19 at 14.00 s.t.

Ethics Committee

The Faculty Board has established an Ethics Committee. Members of the committee are the Associate Dean Research (with the Dean as deputy) and another expert member of the faculty, both appointed for a period of two years.

Members of the Ethics Committee:
    
Prof. Dr. Andreas Hasenclever, Associate Dean Research
Prof. Dr. Joachim Grammig

Main task of the committee is to monitor the compliance with ethical standards in the areas of research of the faculty, especially in empirical research.

In particular, the committee has to ensure compliance with ethical guidelines and those related to data protection issues as well as the adherence to regulations for the application for and implementation of research projects. If necessary, the compliance must be confirmed to third parties. Dealing with fundamental ethical issues in sciences is not included in the committee’s range of tasks.

Please email your proposals to the Ethics Committee including any related documentation to: dekanat[at]wiso.uni-tuebingen.de. Only proposals of members of the Faculty of Economics and Social Sciences will be processed (professors, academic and other staff, doctoral students). All information provided will be kept confidential.

Objectives and duties of the Equal Opportunities Committee

In cooperation with the Equal Opportunities Committee, the Equal Opportunities Officer of the Faculty of Economics and Social Sciences carries out the legal tasks set out in the Higher Education Act of the Federal State of Baden-Württemberg regarding the promotion of female junior researchers in particular.

The Equal Opportunities Committee provides support and assistance to the Family Office to implement a family-friendly university (audit family-friendly university).

Furthermore, the Equal Opportunities Committee is in charge of diversity matters. In cases of sexual harassment or discrimination based on ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, or social and religious background, both the members of the Equal Opportunities Committee and others (Associate Deans Academic, Central Equal Opportunities Officer) are the main points of contact.
The Equal Opportunities Concept of the university sets out the tasks of the Equal Opportunities Officer in more detail. The officer has an advisory function in matters concerning the Faculty Board.

The Equal Opportunities Committee is comprised of the Equal Opportunities Officer of the Faculty, the deputy officer and student and non-student representatives from all institutes and the two schools/departments. During the semester, the Equal Opportunities Committee meets on a regular basis (Rules of Procedure of the Equal Opportunities Committee at the Faculty of Economics and Social Sciences).

Equal Opportunities at the Faculty of Economics and Social Sciences

Today, female student numbers correspond to those of males, or even exceed them, but during the course of their academic careers the proportion of females is continually shrinking (‘leaking pipeline’).

The Faculty of Economics and Social Sciences is no exception: The proportion of females among all students at the Faculty is very high (60.9 percent in winter semester 2015/16). Among first-year students, their proportion is even higher (64.8 percent). At the other end of the pipeline, however, the proportion of female professors at the faculty is only 20.5 percent (9 women, 35 men). Given the specific situation of women in Economics and Social Sciences, the Equal Opportunities Committee focuses on the promotion of female junior researchers and gender research.  

 The Faculty has funding programs in place that serve this purpose.

Interested students, doctoral students, and mid-level faculty staff have the opportunity to submit applications for a partial funding of research projects, conference participation, etc., to the Equal Opportunities Committee. ("Equal Opportunities Committee Funds").

As part of the TEAching-Equality-Program, financed through quality assurance funds, the individual institutes of the Faculty and the School of Business and Economics are free to apply for funding of gender studies teaching assignments and gender-related talks and lectures ("TEAching-Equality-Program").
The Equal Opportunities Committee at the Faculty of Economics and Social Sciences has budgeted annual TEA funds to carry out the workshop on “Gender Mainstreaming and Diversity Management – Professional Qualification Areas”, which has been included in the teaching program for interdisciplinary qualifications.

Researchers in the field of gender studies must continue to apply for guest professorships at the University of Tübingen Central Equal Opportunities Officer
