The University Supervisory Board is the university's statutory supervisory body, comparable to the supervisory board of a company, and responsible for the development of the higher education institution.
The University Supervisory Board supervises the President’s Office which manages the university and fulfills the tasks specified in section 20 subsection 1 of the act on the higher education institutions in the Land of Baden-Württemberg (Landeshochschulgesetz, LHG). The University Supervisory Board is, inter alia, responsible for approving the strategic plans developed by the President's Office and the deans’ offices as well as the university’s budget. The University Supervisory Board also discusses the establishment of new university institutions as well as changes to and dissolutions of existing institutions. In addition, the University Supervisory Board controls the effects and the cost effectiveness of the measures initiated by the President's Office and the schools.
As the supervisory body, the University Supervisory Board gives impetus to the university’s long-term position.
The Constitution of the University of Mannheim specifies the composition of the University Supervisory Board.
The University Supervisory Board has nine elected members. Four members are members of the university while five members come from external institutions and companies. More details are specified in section 20 of the act on the higher education institutions in the Land of Baden-Württemberg and section 4 of the Constitution of the University of Mannheim.
