Discussion with Groep-één of the University Council
(2017-09-25)

Dear Cosmos Members Every year on the first of September, we see the same ritual unfold. Thousands of new students taking their first steps on the TU/e campus, going to their first lectures, speaking their first words to people who will become their friends for life. With their first steps on campus, our first-years also take their first steps into the TU/e community. A community consisting of a near uncountable number of associations, several enormous buildings and everything you could reasonably need in your student life, located on the TU/e campus. In truth, our campus is more like a small country, then some actual countries. Similar to a “real” country, there is a governmental structure on the TU/e and quite fortunately for our students, the inhabitants of the TU/e, this government is not a dictatorship of CEO’s. The democratic arm of the government of the TU/e consists of many councils, but ultimately comes down to the University Council. It is their role to advise, influence and agree with the Executive Board, which makes them quite similar to a “Tweede Kamer” or a Senate in politics. In this University Council there are 9 seats for students which are split amongst two parties: the fraction Groep-één has 5 seats and the ESR has 4 seats. It is their job to fight for the needs of the students, and to translate your opinions into policies. Which brings us to the core of this message: the fraction Groep-één has indicated that they very much like to involve the members of Cosmos in this decision making process. Therefore, on Monday the 25th of September they will organize an Information Session for the members of Cosmos. The goal is to have a discussion on the current issues in the University Council, as well as some topics that have not come up yet. Therefore, we welcome you all to this event on Monday the 25th of September at 18:30 in the Common Room. Everyone is welcome to voice their opinions and to participate in the discussion! Till Monday!
