Candidate Faculty Council Science

Dylan van Tongeren voor Lijst VUUR aan Universiteit Utrecht

Dylan van Tongeren

Party leader Faculty Council Science 2020-21
Study: Chemistry

I am Dylan, third year student of Chemistry and # 18 on Lijst VUUR! In addition, on behalf of Lijst VUUR, I am a candidate for the Faculty Council of Science, Chemistry district.

As vice-chairman and commissioner for Educational Affairs of the Utrecht Chemical Student Association “PROTON” and as a student board member of the Department of Chemistry, I work every day to promote student interests. Now, of course, I will not stop there after this year: I intend to use the knowledge and experience that I have gained over the past year to pull out all the stops next year to stand up for my fellow students, not this time as director, but as co-representative.

We are facing major challenges next academic year. What will study in a ‘anderhalvemetersamenleving’ (one and a half meter society) look like? Concerns about study delay, educational quality and student welfare are growing among all students, especially within a faculty such as Bèta that has a huge interest in physical practicals. Being able to make the student’s voice heard in the debate on these topics is what drives me as a representative!
