EDUCATION COMMITTEES AND STUDY ASSOCIATIONS

My function is being the contact person with the study associations and the education committees. At the start of the academic year I make sure all education committees have enough members and when there are problems with something related to the study I contact them to see if they can discuss this. Problems they hear will be passed on to me as well, so I can take it to the council. I also attend the TSB Platform meetings and the faculty forum. With these meetings, you discuss various problems to see what can be done about it and the associations give each other updates about what keeps them busy. For this function it is good to be able to make contact with different people, since you have to do this with this function when you want to speak to different members of the associations and committees. You will meet a lot of people and your social network will grow a lot in a board year.
