Sarah is a third-year Political Science student focusing on peace, conflict and security studies. Together with Juanita, she will take on the position of chair within the 2018-’19 Student Council. Besides this, her main goals include to enable student initiatives in bringing about change in the dorms through close cooperation of the Student Council with the Tenants Association; to enhance student involvement concerning AUC’s curriculum through a re-determination of the Student Council in facilitating a platform in which student’s voices can be heard; and to improve the perceived visibility and approachability of the Student Council among AUC students. Together with Bart, Paula, Viki and Juanita, Sarah aims for next year’s Student Council to be pro-active in realising projects based on student representation, to be responsive to what is happening in our bubble, and to be approachable and visible for all of you!
Juanita is a third-year social science student interested in environmental policy. Acting as co-chair of the 2018-19 student council, she will focus on environmentally friendly changes within the academic building and also revising and improving the curriculum. She would also like to see more student involvement and is excited to work closely with students. Improving the overall student experience is the main goal.
Viktoria is the secretary and treasurer of the Student Council 2018/-19 at AUC. She is in her third year at AUC and will be finishing her degree in the Social Sciences with a focus on International Relations. Like her studies, she likes learning about how society, and with it how each individual, can change and improve their own reality. She is extremely excited to see where this next year will bring us, as the representatives of the students, as well as AUC as a community and an academic institute.
Paula is a third-year social science student focusing on health and anthropology. Within the student council, she will be responsible for Internal Communications, aiming to engage the student body and facilitate communication and transparency between students, lecturers, staff and management. Aside from this, Paula will be focusing on increasing sustainability, making the student council more approachable and on improving the student experience. She is very excited to listen to student ideas and concerns and will strive to ensure that these opinions are implemented when feasible.
Bart is a second-year student who will be majoring in the Humanities. In the Student Council of 2018-2019, he will humbly hold the position of External Communications Officer. His main task is to represent the student body of AUC to our mother universities, the UvA and the VU, whilst also liaising with representatives of other University Colleges located in the Netherlands. Moreover, he will be working closely together with AUC’s Tenants Association, a committee set up to ameliorate student life in the dorms. Hence, Bart will also regularly spar with DUWO to work on a sustainable and reciprocal relationship between tenant and landlord. He will endeavor, among other things, to sustain the participatory leadership paradigm at AUC by, e.g., organizing Voices of AUC; to carry on the work started by his predecessors in the realm of the master’s transition by, e.g., collaborating with the UvA’s Student and Career Center (SCC); to make the presence of the Student Council known within the AUC community by not only conducting backroom negotiations, but also engaging vis-à-vis with students.
