The student council - a cooperative, supportive and fun planning instance between the students and the institutions of study cannot stand on two feet without an elected student council board - let alone walk! The student representative of a student council takes over all kinds of organizational obligations, seeks contact and connections to other areas and instances on the KIT campus and is decisive in coordination and implementation of changes within the student council as well as in planned events for the students.
The first student council speaker is our student council leader and the other two divide the tasks of the committee speaker and the public spokesperson between them.
In the upcoming elections it is your task to give the student council a face that represents you, your wishes and your needs and also responsibly puts them into action.
You can find a list of our representatives in our WahlSchärferBitte 2021.
The student parliament (StuPa) is the decision-making body of the student body. It consists of 25 members who belong to different political lists. Your votes decide who may enter the StuPa and. Thus how many votes are available to the respective lists.
The StuPa's tasks include the election of the AStA's speakers, changes to the statutes, decisions on the student body's budget and the appointment of official university-wide committees. Above all, however, it represents the opinion of the entire VS on certain topics and therefore benefits significantly from each individual vote, which legitimizes it in its function as a representative, e.g. vis-à-vis the KIT.
More detailed information about the individuals on the respective lists can be found in the election valve of the AStA
Ballots are important decisions that are made directly by the student body.
This year the following two questions will be decided by ballot:
1. Ballot on CAMPUSbike
Currently, a test phase for CAMPUSbike is running until the end of September. Now there is the possibility to extend the offer until September 2024. The ballot decides on the conclusion of such a contract.
You can read all information about the terms of the contract in this document. Do you think the conditions are reasonable or completely exaggerated? Cast your vote and become part of a democratic decision.
2. Ballot fzs
The fzs is currently the only general, party-independent, nationwide student association in Germany. It represents students at the federal level and ensures that student needs are taken into account in federal politics. Its members comprise about one third of the students in Germany. This makes the fzs the largest student association in Germany.
The discussion about the ballot on joining the fzs started a strongly polarizing debate in the student parliament.
Therefore, for a better overview, pro and con texts were written, which you can read in this document.
Due to the many different opinions, it is also important here that you can represent an opinion through your vote and that the majority can be represented by a clear decision.
