Activism recognition

As a board member you have meant a great deal to the student community. It is not only important that you receive a financial compensation for this, but also that you get recognition for your work. This is why it is possible to apply for activism recognition which will be awarded in the form of an official certificate. In this way, you can demonstrate to future employers that you have spent at least 40 weeks working for a student organisation. Besides, you can also request an Edubadge, with which you can also show this digitally.

Your certificate is issued by the board of the University of Twente: the Executive Board. The Rector Magnificus, Thom Palstra, is involved with the activism recognition and signs all the recognitions personally.

Below, the conditions, procedure and guidelines of the application are explained in more detail for both the full- and the part-time activism recognition. Please take care that you download the files applicable to your type of application as they differ in content.

The AC consists of four students: Femke Witmans, Bauke Morra, Maaike de Bondt, and Nadieh Kaldenbach

Receiving the activism recognition

When your report has been approved, the certificate will be printed and signed by the Student Union and the Rector Magnificus. Therefore, it will take several weeks after the approval, before you can collect the certificate. As soon as your certificate is ready, the AC will contact you to make an appointment with you to collect your recognition certificate.
