Focus: student wellbeing

Floris (22) is a third year History student. He also started studying Interdisciplinary Social Sciences this this year. He wants to bring his critical attitude to the University Council and work towards a better university. 🙂

Studying at two faculties simultaneously is a challenge. It has made him realize how important overarching policy is for our University. That’s why he wants to represent students in the University Council next year. The University Council is a representative body whose concern lies with both substantial and smaller issues that nevertheless need to be streamlined. An important issue he would like to defend is a fairer distribution of board grants. The University should (also) reward associations that value the pursuit of knowledge. Floris also stands for improved education and honours programmes. Furthermore, we need to be more attentive, and find solutions in regard to the psychological ailments of our students. We could work to make the student psychologist more accessible to those who could benefit from this guidance.
