Pepijne van Rooijen

List Leader

Student Communicatie- en Informatiewetenschappen, board member SVO Humanities, former board SV Contact and involved with Amnesty International SG Utrecht.

Pepijne: The university should be a place for ALL students and create a safe environment for all its students. Lijst VUUR is working hard to make this happen: a sustainable, inclusive, accessible place with room for student wellbeing, personal growth and development. Next year, I would therefore like to dedicate myself to making the university a little more beautiful!

Kim van Dorp

Number 2

Student Liberal Arts & Sciences, former board member of SIB-Utrecht and member of USLAS Atlas.

Kim: During my board year at SIB-Utrecht, I learned how much influence you can have on the lives of students. However, this was on a small scale and I would like to take this responsibility to a higher level.

Saskia Hubers

Number 3

Masterstudent Applied Ethics and member of ViaKunst and FUF.

Tessa Hölscher

Number 4

Student Liberal Arts & Sciences and English Language & Culture. Member of USLAS Atlas and study association Albion.

Tessa: My main points are:

– Promoting sustainability within HUM – Promoting and standing up for the interests of internationals – Initiating discussions on inclusion and student wellbeing (e.g. discussing the option for online/recorded lectures)

Koen Janssen

Number 5

Student Taal- en Cultuurstudies and member of Study Foundation Alias.

Koen: Hey! My name is Koen and I am currently in my third year of Language- and Cultural studies. Next year I want to push for both student wellbeing and quality of education, as I feel like the transition from digital to physical education does not always go smoothly. I mainly think it is important that students know where they can go and what the possibilities within the university are, so that everybody gets the support they need!
