Board of Trustees of the Neu-Ulm University of Applied Sciences
The Board of Trustees of the Neu-Ulm University of Applied Sciences (HNU) acts as a stakeholder and source of ideas for the HNU in the public and fosters the fulfillment of tasks by the HNU. It was established in the fall of 2013 and met on December 5, 2013 for its inaugural meeting.
The Board of Trustees was created as a result of the second HNU future workshop, which was held in June 2012 under the title "Which university of applied sciences does the region need?". Nine topic areas were discussed by the participants – representatives of companies, universities and employees of the HNU; they debated about the possibilities of how to enhance the substantive profile of the HNU. The ideas developed resulted in specific projects and in the idea to re-convene the Board of Trustees at the HNU.
The members of the Board of Trustees are public figures who are especially connected with the HNU. They are intended to stay in active working life.
They are appointed by the Senate.
The members of the Board of Trustees elect for the tenure a chairman or a chairwoman and a deputy chairman or a deputy chairwoman out of its members.
