The fraction of DAS Eindhoven is one of the two student fractions in the University Council. We are currently holding three seats here.
The UC is the representative advisory body of the TU/e. We give advice or consent on decisions that the Executive Board of the TU/e wants to make. Besides this, we also have a right of information and initiative on university related topics.
As a student fraction we are able to directly influence decisions made by the Executive Board of the TU/e. As you can imagine, these decisions have a large impact on students. DAS focuses on representing the ambitious students, for example through enabling students to study in a more flexible way and working on improving online education. Ambitious students is a broad concept for us which can range from being active in a study, student or sports association, being in a student team or just wanting to achieve more than a diploma on a piece of paper during your time as a student.
Aside from the University Council, DAS is also actively involved in the municipality, and represents the student’s voice in the ongoing discussions on student housing in Eindhoven.
