Board

The Students Council’s board is made up of twelve elected offices that take care of official matters and social activities. They are overseen and supported by the three independent mediators.

Executive Organizers

Contact: studentscouncil@ucf.uni-freiburg.de

The three Executive Organizers are the linking element of the board and the main coordinators and representatives of the StudentsCouncil. They organise the Students Council with its regular meetings and communicate issues of the Students Council to the UCF staff in monthly meetings with its management. Moreover, they collect ideas and implement projects. They are responsible for encouraging active engagement of the student body by distributing tasks and coordinating task forces.

The three Executive Organizers are Quill Kukuj, Sophia Wong and Alex Xasterouli.

Delegates to the Board of Studies (StuKo)

The delegates to the Board of Studies represent student opinions and take a stand for student interests in the LAS Board of Studies (StuKo). The StuKo is an inter-faculty board that deals with different issues regarding the LAS Study and Examination Regulations (Studien- und Prüfungsordnung/StuPo), which is the document defining and regulating our programme on a legal basis. The delegates also attend the meetings with the directorate.

In addition, the delegates are your primary contact for all academic matters (e.g., attendance policy, major events, external course evaluations/ recommendations) .

The Delegates to the Board of Studies are Caleigh Chambers, Franka Jäger, Millie Lemke and Kimmy Shah.

Delegate to the Fakultätsrat

Contact: –

The delegate to the Fakultätsrat is a member of the council of the faculty of philosophy which regularly discusses and decides on the development of the fourteen institutions of the faculty of philosophy (one of which is LAS). The delegate is elected in the university elections among all students belonging to the faculty of philosophy. Therefore, it is possible, but not necessary, that the delegate to the Fakultätsrat is a LAS student. When a LAS student is elected delegate to the Fakultätsrat, they also automatically become a delegate to the Board of Studies (unless the delegate declines).

Currently no LAS student has been elected. The three student members of the Fakultätsrat are Nicola Maria Merz, Janina Wysocki, Antonios Chrisofakis.
