Student self-government – a cumbersy term, which is actually quite simple to explain.
We are students like you and want to make our time at Geisenheim University of Applied Sciences as beautiful as possible. Our motto From students to students, we take it seriously and introduce you to the different areas of work, our responsibilities and the Senate.
More detailed information on the individual areas and important documents can be found on the subpages.
The Studierenden Parlament (StuPa) is the highest body of the Student Council. As the name suggests, the StuPa represents your – indeed – your interests. Therefore, you can always contact the StuPa, which will take care of your problem, question or idea.
The 13 to 15-member StuPa is elected annually in the winter and meets regularly during the semester, where your concerns and the concerns of your fellow students are heard and discussed.
At the same time, the StuPa puts into effect the AStA, i. e. the General Student Committee.
The AStA is part of the Student Self-Administration. With two general boards and the finance directors, he represents all students of the university. In addition, the board of directors appoint different departments, which represent all sorts of interests of the student body. A total of 15 – 20 students are involved in the AStA.
Our tasks are therefore very diverse. Whether AStA party, tastings, informative seminars, excursions – there is always something going on!
The Senate is not part of the student self-government, but of the university’s self-government.
It is composed of the following:
