The Study Association Deliberation Platform (StOP) is the consultative body for all study associations related to studies at Leiden University and Leiden University of Applied Sciences. StOP know four key objectives.
Communication is key. We aim to streamline and coordinate the various communication between the educational institutions and the member associations, as well as amongst the associations. In doing so, we also focus on advocacy on behalf of the associations.
Connecting the various study associations is crucial for our student community. We are facilitating this by stimulating collaborations in committees, promoting member association activities and hosting informal events.
We actively stimulate the sharing of knowledge between our individual member associations. That is why we organise multiple consultations, meetings and training courses on various subjects.
We are committed to enlarge the social involvement of our member associations. Much attention is being paid to diversity, inclusion and sustainability through thematic trainings and meetings throughout the year.
Every year, a number of students are involved in the management of StOP. In academic year 2021-2022 this is the 10th 25th board. Find out more about who they are and what they do below.
My name is Anna Easton and I will be the President of the 10th 25 StOP-board. In addition to this, I hope to obtain my Bachelor in International Relations and Organisations this year.
My primary portfolios are Alumni, the Interfaculty Congress, the National Deliberation Platform, the Promotion training and the Study associations guide. I will be the first point of contact for the Archeology faculty, the Social and Behavioural Sciences faculty and Leiden University. I am also secondarily responsible for the Leidsch Debat.
I am very excited to meet many board members from our member associations and hope that StOP provides them with plenty of useful information and contacts. If you have any further questions or comments, please feel free to contact me!
My name is Nick, and this year I will hold the position of Secretary at StOP, which means that in addition to keeping minutes, I am responsible for most of the official communication and administrative tasks. Next to my responsibilities at StOP I hope to obtain my Bachelor of Science in Chemistry during this academic year.
At StOP I have the portfolios Act on Management and Supervision of Legal Entities, Emergency Response and First Aid Course, Forum for Small Associations, Lead contact Leiden University of Applied Sciences, and the Overlap Committee. I am the secondary on the portfolio Introduction Weeks. Next to this, I will be the contact person for the faculties Medicine and Science, as well as for Leiden University of Applied Sciences.
After last year I hope we can look forward to a year full of new firsts and reconnecting with old traditions. If you have any questions, you can always reach out to me!
