Faculty Board

Multimember faculty boards manage the university's faculties. ITC's Faculty Boards consist of a dean and portfolio managers for education, research, capacity development and operational management. A student will also be affiliated with each Faculty Board in an advisory role (student assessor). The Faculty Board is responsible for the general oversight and management of the Faculty. This includes structuring the Ffaculty’s activities in teaching and education, the pursuit of science, and contributing to the overall management of the University.
