The Wissenschaftskolleg's committees consist of the Academic Advisory Board, the Members' Assembly, and the Ernst Reuter Foundation's Board of Trustees.
Academic Advisory Board
The Academic Advisory Board advises the Kolleg's Rector on all academic matters. Particularly in regard to appointing Fellows, the Rector bases her decisions on the recommendations of this internationally composed body.
The Members' Assembly sets the guidelines for the Wissenschaftskolleg's work and determines its annual budget. It receives and formally accepts the Rector's annual report and annual statement of accounts.
