Constitution and implementation of the quality management guarantees the participation of all faculty members and hence ensures its transparency. A bottom-up-approach provides valuable input from all parties involved and improves the acceptance of the quality management process. The principles of subsidiarity, participation, as well as transparency are put into effect trough the respective quality management structure.
The great diversity of the persons involved requires coordination of different working methods and mindsets, as well as an exchange of information and experience. The determining factor is therefore a clear and active communication between all parties. The communication within the quality management is based on existing structures and allows knowledge transfer between different levels. A clear definition of responsibilities and establishing “ownership” results in ongoing improvements of the quality.
The basic principles of quality management on the faculty, department and degree programme level comply with the basic principles of the centralized quality management of the FAU. For the continued development of the quality of teaching and studying the FAU ensures constant quality assurance and quality development in the field of teaching as well as strengthening of the quality culture.
The FAU aims to coordinate and to continuously evaluate relevant areas for teaching on faculty and university level (administration & board). This is to provide new impulses for the further development of the offered degree programmes, for an increase of the study quality and for a reduction of lecturers’ workload.
