Be a SC Chair!

As Chair of the Social Committee you have the leading role in representing the social interests of over 4000 University College students. You will chair a committee consisting of 9 Social Representatives, one from each UC. Together you will join forces to discuss common social topics, identify shared issues and suggest ideas to work towards an environment that is better for UC students. Discussion of topics will lead to a sharing of knowledge and resources among the Social Representative Bodies making them all stronger in the long-run and will allow for collaboration on shared and bigger projects.

As Chair of the Social 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. As SC Chair you will also be delegating the approval of social events, such as for example Spotlight, or which UC will host this year’s UCSRN Tournament.

Do you passion for University College social life, and do you have an opinion about how to make it better, consider running for SC Chair! Any questions are always welcome at
