Roos is as the president of the Student Union working on the portfolios Strategy and Policy. Her tasks partly focus on the constant development of staff policy of the Student Union Community. This makes her the confidant of every employee, board member or committee member within our organisation. Together with our Office Manager she makes sure that each member of the Student Union Community can perform effective but also enjoyable.

Her main responsibility is to make the transition from visions and strategies to decisions that are made by the board for the long term policy. Roos is familiar with the main outlines of all board portfolios and is the contact person for the public. Any suggestions or criticisms are then referred to the appropriate persons.

Another portfolio of Roos is recognitions. She is the contact person for all associations and foundations which are connected to the Student Union or which are interested to become a Union participant.

Hi, my name is Roos and in the upcoming year I’ll be part of the Student Union board. I’m the new President and the portfolio holder of Policy & Strategy and Staff & Organisation. First a little bit about myself. In 2014, I started my Bachelor Technical Medicine, which I liked right from the start. Because of the ambiance and experience of the study here, I chose to leave my hometown Houten to study and live in Twente.

Since then I walk around here and have always had a great time! Before the Kick-In started, I moved into the beautiful Halfaf, a student house with eight other women. During the Kick-In, I chose to become a member of the student association A.S.V. Taste. I participated in several committees of which the Taste Kick-In committee was definitely a highlight.

And now it's time for something else: the Student Union! I'm looking forward towards coming year! As president, I think it's very important to monitor the ambiance within the board. In order to be able to achieve certain goals together, good team dynamics are essential. Each board member has its own diverse portfolios, but our goal is to function as one team, instead of five separate islands.  Furthermore, the preparations of the our new strategic plan will start this year. This document gives the Student Union a certain direction for the coming four years. For me the challenge to make a start on this plan!
