Executive and Management Regulations
The EMR contains provisions on the management and organisation of the university. It identifies the most important bodies and their tasks, such as the Supervisory Board, the Executive Board and the Board for Doctorates, as well as the general organisation of the faculties. In particular, it addresses the tasks of the dean, the director of education, the Graduate School and the faculty Graduate Schools. It also includes provisions concerning employee participation and legal protection for students and employees. While the EMR contains more of the organisation’s tasks, the TU Delft Mandate Regulations describe powers within the organisational units.
The Mandate Regulations concern the powers of the Executive Board (EB): the powers the EB holds and those it delegates (mandates), particularly to the deans and the directors of University Services. Those powers can then be further delegated (sub-mandated) by a dean or director. These are powers that have external consequences, such as entering into contracts and taking decisions about legal status. The regulations also set out the general principles for mandating, including the obligations related to issuing mandates. The Mandate Regulations were last amended in 2014. The EMR describes the tasks of the organisational units.
The TU Delft Supervisory Board Regulations include: composition and appointment, tasks and powers (the subjects about which it approves or offers recommendations), the requirements relating to independence, ancillary activities and conflicts of interest, meetings, the provision of information by the Executive Board, the appointment of members to the Supervisory Board by the Executive Board and accountability to the Minister of Education, Culture and Science.
The Code of Conduct exists to help staff members, students and guests to act in line with the values that we find important, even in complex situations. For example, how should you respond if you see behaviour that you consider to be inappropriate? The code sets out what is meant by our core values: Diversity, Integrity, Respect, Engagement, Courage, and Trust (DIRECT). The code also contains the TU Delft Integrity Statement, with the basic guidelines that all are expected to act in accordance with. It also explains the responsibilities of staff members, students, guests and TU Delft as an organisation. Detailed information about the TU Delft integrity policy can be found on the integrity webpage.
