Senate Committees

Senate Advisory Committee on Mobility

The Senate Advisory Committee on Mobility in rural Areas has an inter-faculty interface function. This committee was founded in March 2015 based on a previous work group. The focus of the committee is mobility within our university, i.e. for students, professors and other staff. Current topics are efficient public transport and e-mobility which also provide semester projects for our students. These focus on, for example, questions of environmentally friendly, efficient and socially responsible transport connections.
