The Nomination Assembly selects the number of faculty representatives to be elected, in accordance with the organisational plan, to the Faculty Board (three representatives) and each of its committees (six representatives).

Power of influence

The role of faculty representative on the faculty Board or one of its committees entails participating in and taking responsibility for KI’s core activities and their development within the remit of the body in question. A faculty representative works to realise the goals as set forth in KI’s strategy (Strategy 2030). The ability to both see the whole – KI’s best interests – and delve deeper into specific issues is an important aspect of the assignment.
