What is the StuPa?

The Student Parliament (StuPa) is the highest panel of the student representation, the decision-making institute of the student body. It decides on all fundamental matters.

As the name suggests, the StuPa represents your interests! Therefore, you can always contact the StuPa, which will gladly take care of your problem, your question or your idea. The StuPa consists of 7 to 15 members and is elected annually in the winter semester. During the semesters, the StuPa meets regularly to listen to and discuss your concerns and those of your fellow students in order to implement or forward them.

The tasks of the StuPa are determined by the regulations of the Hessian Higher Education Act as well as by the statutes of the student body.

These are the tasks of the StuPa:

  • Enacting, amending and repealing the statutes and regulations of the student body
  • Enacting and reviewing the AStA (General Student Committee; see Audit Committee)
  • Deciding on the use of the student body's financial resources and adopting the budget
  • Determining the amount of the student body's contributions
  • Determine the purpose of use of surpluses from the annual financial statement
  • Discussing and approving/rejecting budget requests from students
  • Establishment of other committees and election and deselection of their members
  • Organizing its own elections (see Election Committee)
  • Proposal of student representatives for the administrative board of the Student Union
  • Promoting political and civic understanding among students by creating opportunities for them to become involved in university politics and to learn about and exercise their own democratic rights
  • To ensure that university life is free from xenophobia and racism

You have suggestions for improvement? Tell us about your problem in the next session and we will help you. Just fill out the application and send it to us by email. See you at the next meeting!

Auditing Committee

The Audit Committee reviews the handling of funds from the AStA every six months on the basis of the annual financial statement in the summer, as well as the interim report in the winter. The audit is carried out on a factual, economic and arithmetical level and mainly checks whether the accounting is correct and the use of funds is in the interests of the student body. The subsequent audit report is submitted to the StuPa and the university presidium.

Traffic Safety Committee

The Traffic Safety Committee is working on the traffic safety around and on the campus of Geisenheim University. The 10th StuPa already demanded a safe crossing of the road near the GTZ and initiated the planning of a zebra crossing in cooperation with the mayor. This project led to the construction of the Von-Lade roundabout at the end of July, which means more safety in everyday life not only for us, but also for the pupils of the two neighbouring schools. We are keeping an eye on these and other projects for you and look forward to hear about ideas from you for a safer campus.

Representatives on the Traffic Safety Committee 2023/ 2024:
