The DAZ consists of various units and people, and coexists with the Board Secretariat and the Administrative Staff. These various units and people are placed close to the Executive Board, which is considered useful. Currently, these are the Office of Doctoral Presentations and Academic Ceremonies, Studium Generale and the Sports Centre.
The Board Secretariat provides support to the Executive Board and the University Council.
