THE KOPRO IN BRIEF

The "Cooperation Project West Coast University of Applied Sciences – Church – Student Union of Schleswig-Holstein" (KOPRO) is an institution from three very different agencies that decided at the end of the 90s to work together to try something new in Heide at the West Coast University of Applied Sciences (FHW). For the first time, a cooperation project was set up at a university of applied sciences, which was created as a pilot project with a duration of ten semesters.

TASKS

The tasks of KOPRO include working with foreign students as well as the classic church work at a university, which is aimed at all teachers and students. KOPRO manages and maintains an International Meeting Centre (IBZ), which is connected to a student dormitory and is open to all of the people working at the university. A variegated offering of cultural and leisure activities, which contain elements of info and entertainment, are aimed at both the university members and, through the university, to all of the residents of Heide.

advisory board

An advisory board, which meets once per semester, accepts the interim report of the project manager and advises the working committee and the project manager. The three backing agencies as well as students from the FHW are represented in the advisory board. The cooperation project is led by a project manager in a restricted service ratio (50%). A working committee, manned by students from the FHW, advises and plans the respective semester programme as well as special accompanying project and supports their implementation.
