Organizational Structure

International People’s College is a private enterprise but subject to the laws of the Free Schools in Denmark, which means that we benefit from a government regulated support and financial aid.

As a reflection of the very nature of the Free School System our Folk High School organizational structure is democratic in nature – everybody has a voice and everybody’s opinion is being invited and appreciated.

We believe in the strengths of a flat organizational structure bound together by a spirit of democratic consultation that promotes dialogue, intercommunication, and a willingness to see opportunities for new solutions rather than problems.

The diagram below outlines our Folk High School organizational structure, the flow of communication as well as decision making at the International People’s College.
