Portfolio holder Personal Development and Education
The University of Twente is known for its large number of associations, committees and activities. This is only made possible by students who commit to extracurricular activities. In its role as the umbrella organisation, the Student Union wants to ensure this is possible and Tessa is responsible for this within the Student Union’s Board.
He takes care of all extracurricular education opportunities for students. This includes offering students the opportunity to participate in extra-curricular activities. Participation is stimulated in a variety of ways, for example by awarding the More Than a Degree Awards. Tom also provides opportunities for students who are already active to (further) develop themselves through training sessions such as the ‘Board Improvement Program’.
