What is the composition of the Joint Commission of Studium Generale?

The four faculties (Fine Arts, Design, Music, Performing Arts), the Inter-University Center for Dance Berlin (HZT), the Berlin Career College (Zentralinstitut für Weiterbildung, ZIW) as well as the General Students' Committee (AStA) were requested by resolution of the Academic Senate to send representatives for each of the status groups 1 to 4 to the Joint Commission of Studium Generale. In this way, the faculties decide for themselves who will represent their interests in Studium Generale. As soon as a position becomes vacant, the faculties and institutes take care of a replacement individually.
