Other Faculty Bodies
The Academic Senate of the Faculty is a self-governing representative body. Its members are elected by the Faculty academic community (not only teachers, but also students). It approves various issues, such as the faculty budget or internal rules of the faculty; it controls faculty money management; it also elects the dean and is able to potentially dismiss him.

The Disciplinary Comitee conducts disciplinary proceedings with students who have committed a disciplinary offense (violation of obligations stipulated by law or by VŠE and FIR internal regulations).
A common example of such behaviour is the non-payment of fees associated with studying or cheating during exams.
In the most serious cases, the punishment can be imposed in the form of exclusion from studies.
