The participation in decision-making within the faculty is comprised by the Faculty Joint Assembly (FGV). The members of the Faculty Representative Council (FRC) and the members of the Faculty Student Council (FSC) meet with the Faculty Board.
The FRC is the representative body for the faculty's staff members and functions as part of the Works Council. The FSC sees to the students' interests. In the FGC both the students' and staff members' voices can be heard.
