After six years of lobbying and three different concrete proposals, we are glad to announce that tuition-free boardmembership (“collegegeldvrij besturen”) is finally coming to the TU/e!
A proposal by Groep-één TUe and the Eindhovense Studentenraad at yesterday’s University Council meeting has resulted in a high-level agreement with the Executive Board and we will be involved in drafting the implementation details.
The Interstedelijk Studenten Overleg and the Landelijke Studenten Vakbond have released a statement condemning universities nationwide for forcing students to pay for expensive tests during their selection process.
On the TU/e, selection is introduced to limit the number of students in several disciplines. Groep-één was worried about their costs and asked for clarification of the Executive Board. Fortunately, on the TU/e this is not the case.

=== DISCUSSION WITH DUISENBERG === Yesterday Groep-één was present at a discussion with VSNU-chairman Pieter Duisenberg organized in Utrecht for their “Dag van de Medezeggenschap”. The discussion followed the current trends in higher education: finances, work pressure and language. There are no easy solutions yet (although increased financial resources would certainly solve most of the problems), but progress is being made.
Thank you Universiteitsraad Utrecht for organizing this constructive discussion and for inviting us. ...
In gesprek met Duisenberg
February 21, 2018, 4:00pm - February 21, 2018, 7:00pm
Wat vind je ervan dat er onderwijsgeld gaat naar onderzoek? En van de toenemende verengelsing van de universiteit? Wat moet de universiteit doen voor het welzijn van studenten?
Vraag het aan Pieter Duisenberg, de kersverse voorzitter van de Vereniging van Nederlandse Universiteiten (VSNU). Vraag hem onder het genot van een biertje en een bitterbal het hemd van het lijf over alles wat jij belangrijk vindt aan de universiteit.
Van 19 tot en met 23 februari 2018 is de Week van de Medezeggenschap: een week voor en door de medezeggenschap. Een week vol activiteiten waarin de faculteitsraden en de universiteitsraad laten zien wat zij doen voor de de studenten. Elke raad organiseert leuke, toegankelijke evenementen om de medezeggenschap in het zonnetje te zetten.
From 19 through 23 februari it's Student Governance Week: a week filled with activities in which faculty councils and the University Council show what they do for students. Each council is hosting fun events to promote student governance. Save the date!
=== ISO AV === Last Friday Groep-één was present at the third annual Interstedelijk Studenten Overleg - ISO General Members Meeting. We received updates on the politics of Higher Education, information on student-privacy and digitization of education.
===BREAKFAST AT THE EXECUTIVE BOARD=== Our yearly event, the ontbEIt, at which students get the opportunity to talk with the Executive Board about certain topics and see what’s going on in their minds. 30 students participated in the event and since time was short we are considering to let this event take place twice a year in order to keep the connection between the Executive Board and the students alive. ...
