What do the representative advisory bodies do?

The representative advisory bodies represent all students and staff of the AUAS. They consult with the management in order to represent their interests.

We have representative advisory councils at various levels in our university of applied sciences. There is a difference: the Central Representative Advisory Council (CMR) is the Executive Board's main discussion partner on matters affecting the entire AUAS . The individual representative advisory councils talk to the dean, the head of the faculty, about what is going on at their faculty.

Whether central or individual, one thing remains the same: not only do these councils monitor policy at the AUAS, they can also take action themselves. As a council member, you can exert quite a lot of influence. One of the themes on our agenda is the well-being of AUAS staff and students during the coronavirus period. For example, we arranged an additional examination opportunity for students in coronavirus-related situations. And for staff working from home, we sorted out an internet scheme. These are just a few of the many examples.
