As Chair of the Academic Committee, you have the leading role in representing the academic interests of over 4000 University College students. You will chair a committee consisting of 9 academic representatives, one from each UC. Together, you will join forces to discuss common academic topics, identify shared issues and suggest ideas to work towards an environment that is better for UC students. A platform for discussion will lead to a sharing of knowledge and resources among the Academic Representative Bodies making them all stronger in the long-run and will allow for collaboration on shared and bigger projects.
As Chair of the Academic Committee, you will be part of the Executive Board where it is your responsibility to ensure that both parties stay up to date and communication lines remain short. You will act as the bridge between the two bodies. As AC Chair you will also be delegating the approval of sponsorship of academic events, such as a conference, a journal, academic lectures or a Masters fair, and you will hold a role of overview over these events.
So, do you truly have a passion for University College or Liberal Arts and Sciences education, and do you have an opinion about how to make it better, consider running for AC Chair! Any questions are always welcome at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note: as Chair of the Academic Committee, you are an ex officio Chair and do not provide your UC an additional vote in meetings.
