What does the board do?

The board of faculty association Ibn Battuta engages in a lot of various work for the association behind the scenes, but can be regularly found at all our activities, social drinks and of course in our coffee room. The first time you’ll meet the board as a student at our Faculty is during our introductory period. The board is responsible for providing the sale of textbooks and the introductory period. Together with project group Ameland the board organizes the annual first year camp on Ameland.

The rest of the year the board will be taking care of all kind of things.This includes activities such as company visits, but also a lot of social activities like drinks and parties. Also lectures and excursions are on the programm every year! For more information about that, check our agenda or the pages about committees and project groups.

Furthermore, every board member takes place in a committee or project group. Finally, they organize a General Members Meeting at least three times a year where they inform the members about everything what is going on with the association. At this meeting, members have the opportunity to give their opinion about the association, the board or other things that concern them.

Last but not least, the board provides members with coffee and tea in the coffee room of Ibn Battuta (Duisenberg Building 5414.0013) from Monday throughtill Thursday from 09:30 AM untill 13:30 PM and on Friday from 09:30 AM untill 12:30PM. For €15,- you'll get unlimited coffee or tea for the whole study year!
