With the Utrecht PhD Party (UPP), I’m up for election for a seat in Utrecht’s University Council (URaad). I hope to be elected for the term 2019-2021 as party leader of the alfa/gamma list. Every staff member of Utrecht University can vote, including external PhD candidates with a solis id!
So Go Vote, from May 20-22 2019!
UPP stands for the rights, representation and opportunities for PhD candidates and other temporary staff members such as post-docs and teaching staff. Additionally, we have a broader program for the university as a whole that might be relevant to you, with a focus on issues of accessibility, inclusivity and sustainability. You can read our program here: http://utrechtphdparty.nl/party-program/. Our international and interdisciplinary list (see here) and party program are the outcome of meetings and collaborations with PhD Network PROUT, China-UU Scholar Association, Green Office Utrecht, Task Force Diversity and WO In Actie.
