Faculty of Science
The Faculty Student Council (FSR) deals with issues that concern the Faculty of Science and defends the interests of students in meetings with the faculty board. Each year, there are a number of large and small subjects that the FSR is involved in. The FSR represents the students’ interests at the faculty board. The dean is obliged to listen because the FSR has legal consent and advisory rights.
LIEF is visibly present and involved at the faculty (Science Park). We do not let a chance of right of say slip through our fingers. We do our best to decentralize decision-making and bring this right of say closer to the student. To receive your opinion, we regularly organise actions at the university. We stand for:
Decentralization: high-quality education is our main goal and your participation provides more democracy to achieve that goal.
Interdisciplinarity: the university is a place for self-development, extracurricular possibilities should, therefore, be more accessible. Think of studying abroad, following honours courses, fewer requirements for minors/masters, and doing a board year.
Accessibility: everyone must feel welcome and represented, LIEF is for everyone <3
Stout is not scared to take a stand, without being rude. We’re a party that isn’t impressed by authority, but rather curious as to what the best solution is. Next year, we’ll keep you informed through infographics, films and PR stunts. That way, you can see what really happens with your vote. You can always share your opinion with us, for example through one of our petitions.
- Diversity and accessibility: Everyone should have the opportunity to study. This means experimenting with possibilities, even if these aren’t guaranteed to succeed.
- Sustainability: To set an example in the field of sustainability, vegetarian or vegan food should be the standard in the canteen, with meat as an option.
- Dutch: Studying at university after high school is difficult enough; therefore the first year of all bachelors should remain in Dutch.
Slaafs stands for honesty, simplicity and beer. No unachievable election promises, unattainable ideal images and ambiguous positions. We are a party that results from disappointment in student party politics. That is why we make a simple promise: a vote for SLAAFS is a vote for beer. We see council work as voluntary work and our council members therefore waive their reimbursement to organize the well-known SLAAFS drinks. We are a list of individuals where everyone can join, without intrusive party line that set the tone. You can also see this on the list. Our list contains different people with different opinions. But we can guarantee one thing: they all have passion for beer and also heart for the FNWI!
The student council warrants the rights of the students. That takes hard work and good collaboration within the council. That’s why I’m against the useless competition created by the party system; where people with different opinions are part of the same party and the same opinion is found in multiple parties. I want to commit myself to what I believe to be important: every student feeling at home at the faculty.
- Proper study support and more study places;
- As much decentrality as possible, more contact with studies;
- More attention to and a better policy on diversity and sustainability.
