Be a Chair!

The chair is the face of the organization. You represent the UCSRN before its members, the deans, universities, (inter)national student unions, and the students. By being the face you always stay on the front-line of the UCSRN.

To truly represent the interests of the organization it is important to know what is going on in the community. Therefore you build a good relationship with the associations, academic councils and students of the individual University Colleges.

As chair you have the final responsibility for the overall functioning of the organization. You chair the executive board and the organisation as a whole. You set the goals of the UCSRN and provide the board with visionary leadership and teamwork. You create a challenging working environment and are able to inspire and connect people.

Do you think you have got what it takes to bring the UCSRN to greater heights? Or would you just like to get more information on what a year in the UCSRN entails? Do not hesitate to contact us at
