SHAPE is a brand-new party, set up in 2018, with a fresh approach towards university. Like the name suggests, we aim to re-’shape’ the Faculty and University Council, improving its current format. We want to make sure the students know what happens behind the closed doors, and what decisions the councils make.
Our representatives are from different studies from the FHML and FPN. Our candidate list has at least one student representative from each study. Our shared list for the University Council with Ouranos also contains students studying at the Faculty of Law.
Our candidates have experience with being a student representative or being a board member. This means that we already have a lot of knowledge about the inner workings of the faculty. We also have candidates with no experience, who can provide a fresh view in student representation. By keeping close ties with our fellow students and student representatives within and outside of the FHML and FPN, we can make a significant difference within our university.
We have excellent contact between all the study associations in FHML and FPN; MSV Sante, SA Helix, AsKlepiOs, MSV Pulse, EUnitas and LunaTik. There will be regular meetings between the members of the Faculty and University Council and the board members of the study associations.
SHAPE aims to deal with problems that FHML, FPN and UM students in general deal with; problems which we face every day too. By being approachable and accessible for every student within the faculties, we intend to ensure improvement that you will notice on a day-to-day basis, such as more study areas, lecture recordings, more possibilities for student initiatives and flexible studying, more job-opportunities for students at the university beside their study (as a student-assistent for example) and control over the change within study financing laws.
Representatives from SHAPE will work hard to be more transparent and make more people aware of the role of the Faculty Council and University Council within the university. Don’t hesitate to contact us or the candidates if you have any questions, comments or concerns.
