University Council Update – June 2024

In the 5th University Council, we approved the profile fund. In this, decisions were made about board grants and financial support for people receiving Financial Support for students due to special personal circumstances. SAM is very pleased with the developments made and the new policy regarding the profile fund.

Next to that we discussed the revision of the student charter. In this, an additional article was added on right to demonstrate and manifestation. It was decided to discuss this separately at a later time so that proper research can be done on this topic first. In this way the university safeguards people’s right to demonstrate.

Also discussed was the numerus fixus policy of undergraduate and graduate psychology implementation. After clarification from the Executive Board, we issued a positive recommendation for this.

Once again, we as SAM have asked for more transparency regarding the content of the university’s second and third funding streams. These are the fundings besides the funding from the government. The Executive Board has agreed that we will schedule a meeting before the next University Council to discuss what information will be shared and in what way.

During the University Council meeting Palestine Solidarity Tilburg (PST) spoke about their cause and their demand of Tilburg University breaking ties with Israeli universities. This gave us valuable insight and information about their cause. After PST’s statement the university council promised that there will be a special meeting regarding the demands made by PST.
