Study Program Q+ received initial funding from Gutenberg Lehrkolleg for a five year conceptualization and trial period. In the meantime, the JGU Senate gave final approval to Q+ on July 5th, 2019, already one and a half years before the end of the trial period. Starting in 2021, Q+ will be a permanent part of JGU’s higher education programs.
The legal and organizational framework for Q+’s operation is formed by the study and examination regulations that became effective in August 2019: „Ordnung der Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz für das Studium und die Prüfungen im Studienprogramm Q+“ (in German).
These rules also define the duties of the Q+ Steering Committee, which together with the Q+ Office is responsible for quality assurance and further development of the program, among other tasks. In addition, the steering committee appoints a selection commission which decides on the admission of students. The Q+ Office handles daily business, communication, and coordinates all administrative processes, including management of courses and exams.
The minutes of Q+ Steering Committee meetings can be viewed here (JGU login; in German).
