Few days ago, I have announced my candidacy for the Academic Senate of the Central European University. My intention is to represent student interests in one of the most important university bodies. I am student at one-year MA of Political Science coming from Belgrade, Serbia. I have graduated at the University of Belgrade where I was a student representative at the Academic Council of the Faculty of Political Sciences, and I was Erasmus Plus mobility student at the University of Graz.
Interest and wellbeing of the CEU community are in the first place for me. That’s why I am the part of “Masketeers” at CEU – the group of 30 students who are taking care of COVID-19 Protocol and keeping us all on campus safe. My goal also is to help everyone to settle in Vienna, therefore you can find interesting texts on my blog. I believe that for the position in the Senate it is important that students be represented from all levels of study (Bachelor, Master and PhD) and having in mind my previous experience and activism, I believe I will be good representative of Master’s students of CEU. If get elected, my plan is to establish the policy of open doors on weekly basis under which I will discuss students’ problems and initiatives. By selecting me you will get representative who is transparent and accountable. I am also a member of the Current Affairs Club.
CEU and its students and staff are in front of complex times in terms of global pandemic and its recent move to Vienna. I want to give my contribution in enabling undisturbed functioning and the best possible experience for everyone!
