During most of the session, proposals for members of teachers’ appointment and re-appointment committees, with respect to the announcement published in magazine “Odbrana” on 1st March 2012, were discussed.
All participants in the session took part in the discussion and they decided that the committees should also include teachers and researchers that do not work at the University of Defence. The importance of implementation of the provisions of the University of Defence Statute was stressed in the light of the necessity to ensure the required level of the quality of the education at the Military Academy and the University of Defence as a whole.
Major General Mladen Vuruna pointed out that the engagement of professors and researchers from other universities in the committees for teachers’ appointments at the MA would result in a considerable improvement of the quality of the teaching process and higher credibility of the institution of higher education.
