Education Committee sets the ball rolling with assignment of tasks

The first meeting of the FISU Education Committee was held recently with the main objective of allocating tasks to both, committee members, as well as members of the Working Group. However, only the committee members were in attendance in the meeting.

 

Committee members Renata Bojczuk and Daniel Studer, Student Committee member Viktor Kiss and Working Group member Mozes Szekely were allocated to work on the FISU World Forum, while others were assigned to the FISU Conferences, FISU Volunteer Leaders Academy and other projects.

Chair of the Education Committee, Dr Verena Burk said, “It was a great pleasure to meet with the FISU Education Committee members nominated for this new term. In this complicated period, it was an opportunity to ensure continuity and further development of our educational activities. Although most members were already part of the committee in the previous term, it was good to welcome the new members who will certainly bring some valuable contributions.”

 

Committee member Renata Bojczuk felt inspired with the representation around the virtual table.

 

“Seeing colleagues from such far corners of the world like Australia, Argentina, China, and many more, seatedat the same time in the front of the screen, ready to contribute, exchange, and take up new challenges with a great team spirit, was a wonderful feeling!” she said.

 

“We are now all looking forward to meeting soon within smaller project groups, since we were appointed to a number of projects,” she added.

 

As the FISU Forum in Budapest was discussed, it was agreed that even though the date may be unsure due to the current circumstances, and the formula of the Forum might change, the work will continue these smaller project groups and using new technology.

 

Committee member Maria Ines Gomez concluded by saying “It was a very special meeting, despite the distances between us. It was good to hear about new projects, new ideas and the great variety of perspectives that are part of this group, that will enrich all the work we do.”
