Governing bodies

Degree Course Council
The Degree Course Council (DCC) is responsible for the management of the teaching activities - as organised and coordinated by the Departments and Schools, respectively - and gives advice on issues falling within the competences of the 25-degree courses. In particular, the DCC is responsible for developing proposals concerning the degree course regulations to be submitted to the Schools and Departments; approving individual study plans; monitoring the teaching activities on offer. The DCC is convened by the President of the degree course and is composed of the professors of the course units or modules (including those professors whose course units are shared with students studying other pathways and courses), contract professors, student representatives (as established by Art. 5, Paragraph 3), and one representative of the technical-administrative staff, as provided for in the University Regulations.

ERASMUS Mobility Committee
The ERASMUS Mobility Committee encourages and supports the mobility of both outgoing and incoming students and staff members. It is also responsible for making a number of decisions with regard to course units and grade conversion of students participating in the Erasmus Programme.  

Student Records Committee
The Student Records Committee is responsible for addressing a number of student-related issues, such as student transfer procedures of students proceeding from other degree courses and/or other Italian or European Universities.

Study Plan Committee
The Study Plan Committee is responsible for approving, modifying or rejecting the study plan, plus evaluating its adequacy against the degree course.

Career Committee
The Career Committee is responsible for determining whether students proceeding from other degree courses or Universities meet the necessary requirements to enroll in one specific course.

Tirocinio Committee
The Tirocinio Committee is responsible for establishing, together with the professors of the degree course and the external professionals involved in the Tirocinio scheme, the activities that students shall carry out and that are described in the trainee’s logbook; proposing amendments of and/or additions to the traineeship activities included in the trainee’s logbook; establishing  a timetable for traineeship activities; organising and verifying the procedures and services aimed at activating, carrying out, monitoring and checking the quality of the traineeship; defining the evaluation procedures of the activities performed by students, as well as the level of student satisfaction with regard to the activities provided.
The Committee, which is chaired by the Director of the DCVM, is composed of one representative from each discipline involved in the traineeship, the student representatives and one representative from the technical-administrative staff.

Group for Accreditation and Evaluation (GAV)
The Group for Accreditation and Evaluation, alongside with the Teaching Committee of the reference Department, is responsible for managing and supervising the drafting of the SUA form and the Annual and Cyclical Review Reports. Furthermore, the GAV, together with the Joint Committee and the Managing Board of the University, is responsible for the identification and implementation of the necessary improvement and innovation measures, taking into consideration their impact on the quality of training and teaching, as well as the services offered within the degree course.

Staff-Student Joint Teaching Committee
The Staff-Student Joint Teaching Committee is a body of the SASVM that meets periodically to make judgments on both teaching activities and the organization of the degree courses offered within the SASVM. The Committee, which is conceived as a permanent ‘observatory’  of educational activities, is chaired by the Director of the School and composed of an equal number of representatives of professors and students. Directors of the degree courses and members of the Self-Evaluation Group (GAV) cannot be members of the Staff-Student Joint Committee. In particular, the Committee is responsible for: evaluating the functionality and effectiveness of teaching facilities, evaluating the quality of teaching activities, and ensuring the operation and effectiveness of guidance and mentoring programmes. Finally, the Committee can provide opinions with regard to the activation of new degree courses, as well as the deactivation of the already existing ones.

EAEVE Committee
The EAEVE Committee was appointed in 2016 for coordinating the drafting of the Self-Evaluation Report, as well as the organisation of the visit. It is composed of a number of teachers from MAPS and BCA, as well as technical-administrative staff of the School. In the last year prior to the visitation, a number of Committee members, along with external collaborators and consultants, established the EAEVE Accreditation Team.
