SLAAFS currently has three seats in the student council of the FNWI. The council members of SLAAFS, Daan Jellema, Koen Oostinga, and Parcival Maissan, represent their own opinions in the student council. Here they explain what their goals are for the year:
I joined the council because I feel connected to the faculty and its students. This is why I’m committed to making studying at the faculty as pleasant as possible for everyone. I would also like to increase the council's visibility so that my fellow students know what the council can do for them. To this end, I write a column in the To Dah Loo for example. I’m also working on the diversity file because I think it is important that everyone feels at home at the faculty. Despite the fact that I’m the head of a committee, I continue to study next to my council work. If you have any questions about the council, feel free to send me a message or email (firstname.lastname@example.org)!

I finished my bachelor's degree in Future Planet Studies last year, and as a result, sustainability has been a central theme during my time as a student. I want to see sustainability play an even bigger role at the Science Park, creating an environment that is as green as possible. In addition, I am dedicated to the mental health of students. Now that many people have received a mental blow from corona, it is even more important that attention is drawn to this subject. Finally, I think it is very important to get input and engagement from the students at the faculty so that we can deal with the issues present as accurately and efficiently as possible. You can always come and have a chat with me (email@example.com)!

Like most students and staff, I think our educational quality is important. As a member of the student council, I have access to reports and minutes of the past years together with the meetings, which gives me a good overview of what the university has done in recent years to improve education and what it is currently doing. By having an overview of what was going to happen and is happening now, I can work together with the university to bring about these improvements. That is what I want to focus on this year, in addition to the general work in the council. You can reach me at (firstname.lastname@example.org).
