Like all other institutions of higher education under the Danish Ministry of Higher Education and Science, Aarhus School of Architecture has concluded a strategic framework agreement with the ministry. The strategic framework agreement is effective for the period 2018 to 2021.
The agreement contains the following four strategic objectives for Aarhus School of Architecture:
- The common strategic quality development of Aarhus School of Architecture should support the students in achieving a high learning benefit
- Strong practice relations and relevant skills should help the school’s graduates acquire clear and relevant competencies that support the needs of society
- Strong relations to practice and external cooperation should ensure that the school’s research of high quality contributes to developing the profession
- Students who possess digital Bildung (‘dannelse’) and research in digital fabrication should support the ongoing transformation of the profession
The objectives stated in the contract were determined in a dialogue between the ministry and The School Board based on the school’s strategy, challenges and strengths.
The strategic framework agreement should be a central management tool for the individual institution’s management and also provide the basis for a strengthened strategic dialogue between the Minister for Higher Education and Science and the board of Aarhus School of Architecture.
