Here are the subcommittees which perform permanent functions:
The Admission Commission comprises members of the CIUTI Board plus one or two external experts. Within the application procedure for CIUTI membership, the Admission Commission screens and assesses the applicants’ Self-Assessment Reports (SAR). If the SAR warrants further consideration of the membership application, the Admission Commission sends two CIUTI experts to the candidate institute for an on-site evaluation of the teaching and research facilities. On the basis of the SARs and the experts’ reports, the Admission Commission will arrive at an opinion and will present a recommendation for admission or non-admission to the General Assembly.
Regional Development Group
CIUTI was initiated in Europe, but over decades of careful development, its eurocentric roots have grown to a truly world-wide network of top-quality T&I institutes. This sub-committee explores possibilities of expanding the CIUTI mission for T&I excellence to new regions.
The Strategy Group is concerned with medium- and long-term development of CIUTI’s vision, mission, and goals. The SG elaborates proposals and projects and submits them to the Conseil for discussion, approval and presentation to the General Assembly.
“Train the Trainers”-Group
CIUTI institutes set examples of best practices and provide guidance for other and emerging T&I institutes all over the world. Within CIUTI’s overall concept of quality assurance, one key aspect is the quality of T&I trainers. To meet CIUTI standards, T&I trainers should embody the Leibniz principle “theoria cum praxi”, i.e. they should teach on a sound basis of theoretical knowledge combined with practical skills and experience. The “Train the Trainers Group” looks into possibilities of promoting this objective.
