Amendment of the Bavarian Higher Education Act

Joint Position Paper of the Student Council and the Graduate Council

Since the Bavarian Ministry of Science and Arts published the key points of the planned reform of the Bavarian Higher Education Act in October 2020, a broad and constructive discussion about the future direction of the Bavarian higher education landscape has flared up. In this discussion, the perception of the next generation of scientists, who are currently in training, is unfortunately only taken into account to a limited extent. At the Technical University of Munich, for example, this generation forms the largest group with approximately 45,000 students and approximately 7,000 doctoral candidates, who share similar ideas for an innovative Bavarian university landscape.

On January 11, the Graduate Council gathered online for its 78th meeting to vote on their new team of speakers for 2021.

After his term in office as 2nd Speaker (October 2020 to January 2021) we congratulate Sebastian Straßer (TUM Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering) to his new role as 1st Speaker. We are further happy to congratulate Mónica Basilio Hazas (TUM Chair of Hydrology and River Basin Management) for being elected as new 2nd Speaker of the TUM Graduate Council.

As of January 11, Mónica and Sebastian will officially represent the voice of the GC and thus, doctoral candidates at TUM.
