Organization and Administration
The conception of the college includes a step-wise development. In this respect, The German Society for Human Ecology not only represents a network from which a significant part of the faculty could be drawn, but could also serves as an institutional committee securing the quality of teaching and research at the college. There will be a scientific advisory board elected from this network, attending the college throughout Europe. If the first step of establishing the college as a local, European branch of the College of the Atlantic succeeds, one of the major advantages of this would be that parts of the administration could remain in the US initially. In this way, the college could pace its growth appropriately, gradually developing independent in Germany and Europe. For the present, the most pressing matter is to find the optimal location for the various segments of the organization and administration, especially as financial issues take on increasing import in this process.
