Our candidates for the Faculty Council Humanities
These 16 wonderful people are candidates for the Humanities Faculty Council. Please read their story below the photo, about their motivation for student participation.
Pepijne van Rooijen
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
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.
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)
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!
Loes van Deursen
Student Communicatie- en Informatiewetenschappen and member of study association Eureka.
Loes: I would like to be able to have a real influence on the approach to problems that fellow students and I encounter. I also want to gain more experience of working in a more serious setting within an organisation.
Lune de Rijck
Student Philosphy, Politics and Economics and member of study association Metis.
Lune: Personally, I often feel under-represented as a queer and non-binary person in the university’s representative body. Looking to the future, we see the university growing into a place with many international and diverse people. Therefore, as a university council member, I want to be ready to fight to make the university as inclusive as possible for them as well.
