What is the uCSRN?
The UCSRN – University College Student Representatives of the Netherlands – is the national student representative body for University College students. Our members consist of 10 University Colleges across the Netherlands. The Executive Board is chosen by the representatives of all members and their main function is representing the students. The UCSRN is a platform for members to share knowledge, organise events together and discuss national matters. The UCSRN was founded in 2015.
We represent the interests of University College students across the Netherlands. We work with governmental organisations and external organisations at both national and international levels to lobby for Liberal Arts and Sciences Education and to vocalise topics of interests and concerns of University College students. We provide a platform and a strong network to bring University Colleges closer together through our committees as well as multiple inter-UC events throughout the year.
The UCSRN complete structure consists of six different bodies: the Executive Board, the Academic Committee, the Social Committee, the Advisory Body, the Independent Body, and the General Assembly.
What does the Executive Board do?
As executive board you keep the organisation running. This means meeting with the board, members and external partners. Next to that, you oversee events organised in your name and you make sure communication runs smooth. At the beginning of the year you set out goals for the board to achieve, in line with the long-term vision. Next to the general tasks, there is a lot of freedom to pick up any projects you think would help the UC community. As Executive Board, you spend around 10 hours a week, depending on your personal projects. Click on the photos below to learn more about specific positions!
