The chair is appointed by the Disciplinary Domain Board on the recommendation of the Deputy Dean of Education, and one teacher from each section is appointed by the Disciplinary Domain Board (for by-elections, by the Working Committee) on the recommendation of the section deans. A majority of the members should themselves be designated distinguished university teachers. Three student representatives (of which two are preferably from first-cycle or second-cycle programmes and one is a doctoral student) form part of the board.
