Learning Environment Committee
The Learning Environment Committee
The University Board has the overall responsibility for the students' learning environment see § 4-3 Act of universities and colleges. All institutions should have a Learning Environment Committee (LMU) that will help the university board follow up its responsibility. The students' learning environment includes the physical learning environment, the psychosocial learning environment, universal design (facilitating disabled) and the welfare offers.
According to the Learning Environment Committee (LMU) statutes, LMU has the operational responsibility for the quality assurance of the students' learning environment, and is delegated responsibility from the University Board to make decisions in matters related to the learning environment. The Learning Environment Committee participates in the planning of measures relating to the learning environment, and follow up issues concerning the students' safety and welfare.
