A number of members of the FBE council will say goodbye to council work at the end of the academic year. They have devoted themselves for many years to employee and student participation within the AUAS and are handing over the baton to a new generation of students and staff members. Two council members who are going to say goodbye, explain why they think participation is important.

How did you come up with the idea to run for the representative advisory council?

When I applied for the representative advisory council in 2019, I was looking for an extra-curricular (board) position where I could contribute ideas about student welfare and the quality of education. I found that within the representative advisory council!

What do you like about council work?

What I like most about the council meetings is being directly involved in what is happening within our faculty and thus being aware of the latest developments. There is a lot going on behind the scenes that I knew little about as a student. In addition, I think it is important that the students are heard and that the policy is properly monitored.

What tip do you give students and employees who want to apply?

A tip that I would like to give to prospective employee representatives is to write down a number of personal goals that you want to achieve and to certainly not avoid a board position because everyone can learn a lot here.
