SAM is the student active participation (studenten actieve medezeggenschapsraad) of the faculty GGW. A few times a year the SAM organizes meetings where you can give your opinion about subjects concerning the faculty.
Last year it became clear that SAM can actually make a difference within the faculty. Our year theme ‘mental health among students’ became a hot item within the faculty thanks to SAM. The faculty decided to invest money into a large study to address this problem within the faculty. A new form of ‘mentoraat’ will be set up in the following months as well.
This year we hope to address new themes that play a role among students. Our first meeting will touch upon the idea of inclusion within our faculty: how do we make sure all students feel included? Keep an eye on the Gerardus newsletter for more details.
SAM is always looking for input! Do you have a theme that you would like to discuss with your fellow students? let us know!
