The executive departments of the Hochschule Kaiserslautern cover four areas and serve to support the entire university, as the other departments to.
The central Equality Officer of the university leads the Department for Equality. She coordinates measures to enhance equality and equal opportunities at the university and is the point of contact for all interested parties. The executive department for “General Study Advice” is the first point of contact for students and potential students seeking information and support. The extensive range of preparatory and supplementary courses offered by the university are intended to ease the transition into studying for students with varying educational backgrounds. The executive department for “Preparatory and Supplementary Courses” can assist with any queries about this. The executive department for “Quality in Learning and Teaching" is the operational arm of the Senate Committee for Learning and Teaching and in this capacity also serves as a coordinating entity for the university-wide system accreditation.
