Will you be the next studentassesor at the LEG Faculty

The Faculty of Law, Economics and Governance is looking for an engaged and motivated student to serve on the LEG board for the 2023-2024 academic year.

Do you have a vision of good education? Do you want to represent the interests of more than 6,000 students? Does it appeal to you to join the board of a complex organisation? Then this position is for you!

About the LEG board

The LEG board consists of the dean, the vice deans of Education and Impact, the faculty director and the student assessor. The board determines faculty strategies and policies based on developments within education and research. For example, it considers and decides on education and research policy, finances, communication and the profiling of programmes and research at the faculty.

As a student-assessor, you are a member of a number of faculty committees, such as the Elections Committee, the Library Committee and the SKOw Committee. You are a member of the Impact Board and the Board of Studies, and you maintain close contact with the student associations, the student members of the Faculty Council, the programme committees and the assessors in the departmental boards. In short, you will be an important link between students, study associations, participation, alumni and the faculty board.

We are looking for an REBO student who:

  • Has a command of the Dutch language. This is because most of the meetings and papers are spoken and written in Dutch.
  • Knows what is going on among students and can advise the board on this;
  • Is critical and driven;
  • Is interested in and wants to contribute to policy in the field of education, research and social impact;
  • Is sensitive and has a feeling for administrative relations;
  • Has integrity and can handle confidential information;
  • Is able to work independently on spearheads;
  • Has insight into the context in which the faculty and university operate;
  • Strong in communication and cooperation;
  • Can quickly master new issues;
  • Is a good interlocutor with fellow administrators and (policy) staff.

The work will take you an average of sixteen (16) hours per week from September 2023 throughout the academic year. The induction and handover period will be from mid-June and partly in the summer period. The hours are flexible and not tied to fixed days, with the exception of faculty board meetings (Tuesday mornings). For your work, you will receive employment as a student assistant. You can also (if the building is open) use a flexible workplace at Janskerkhof 3. We ask the student assessor (in consultation with the board secretary and former assessor) to draw up an annual plan at the beginning of his/her appointment, briefly describing the goals and priorities you would like to work on as assessor.


For more information and questions, please contact the current assessor, Jasmijn Pelders. You can apply by sending an e-mail including your curriculum vitae and a (short) motivation letter to studentassessor.rebo@uu.nl. Please do this no later than 12 May 2023. Interviews with the current student assessor will take place in the week of 15 May, after which the most suitable candidates will be proposed to the dean.
