Departmental Student Representative
Becoming a Departmental Student Representative ensures that students’ voice is heard within your department and gives you leverage to improve the conditions for yourself and other students. It is a great way to improve your network within your own department and improve your CV at the same time. There are many open positions for representatives per department, so these positions are easier to be elected to, and the responsibility is shared by multiple people. Each department has its peculiarities when it comes to representatives, so it is worth checking in with your current representative when you choose to apply.
As a Departmental Student Representative, you will have more bargaining power to create positive change in your department. You will also function as a contact point between DSA and the students in your department to relay information from DSA to students and highlight local issues on the central KI level.
