The vision, mission, values, and strategic goals guide the activities of the Faculty of Government and European Studies of the New University. At the faculty, we are committed to the continuous improvement of achievements in all areas of operation, therefore monitoring the performance and assessment of achievements/quality is an important aspect of the operation. The aforementioned is achieved through appropriate organization of activities, monitoring, and control of fundamental processes, measuring the effectiveness of processes, their continuous improvement, or taking measures for improvement. The implementation of self-evaluation at the faculty is regulated by the Quality Regulations of the New University, which governs the system of monitoring, evaluation, and quality assurance at the university level, and the Quality Regulations of the Faculty of Government and European Studies, which governs the quality monitoring system at the faculty level. The action plan for the future self-evaluation period can be seen from the faculty’s action plan each time. The quality system at the faculty is based on the Deming circle model:
implementation (To – D),
check (Check – C), and
Activities and processes are improved at the faculty based on a quality feedback loop, the purpose of which is that the findings or undesired situations identified during the inspection are eliminated so that they do not recur in the future. This can be achieved by identifying the causes of errors or undesirable situations, taking appropriate measures, and planning activities and their implementation, and re-checking. The quality of the faculty is monitored by two commissions, namely the Commission for the Quality of the Faculty and the Commission for the Quality of the New University, which examines the self-evaluation reports of the members and proposes to them the adoption of certain measures that are necessary to increase the quality of the functioning of the faculty. The quality committee of the Faculty of Government and European Studies in the current academic year consists of:
- Assoc. prof. dr. Liliana Brožič, president
- M.Sc. Maja Antonič, employer representative
- Ana Štern, secretary
