Arbitration Board of TU Graz

The Arbitration Board mediates disputes at TU Graz between university students and staff or between these individuals and an institution. University students and staff can directly contact the Arbitration Board. The Arbitration Board only can prssent proposals for settlement.

Individuals associated with the university are students and employees, including both internal and external lecturers and tutors.

The Arbitration Board also handles complaints that are registered with the Working Group for Equal Opportunities such as:

  • Complaints of discrimination on the basis of sex, ethnicity, religious beliefs or philosophical and political ideologies, age or sexual orientation.
  • Non-compliance with the 50% quota for women’s representation in collegial bodies such as the Rectorate, University Council and Senate, committees formed by the Senate and proposed representatives for election to the Senate.
  • Decisions and respective verdicts.

Equality, just like scientific merit, is a prerequisite for successful and sustainable development at the university. For this reason, I am happy to contribute my efforts to the Arbitration Board.
