The Student Associations Consultation Platform (STOP) Leiden is the representative platform for study associations in the University city of Leiden and The Hague. Being representative is the main objective of STOP. This means that we organize meetings to listen to the opinions of board members of many very different study associations and their voices when it comes to issues that concern them and probably others. Obtaining this information and views of the association goes through meetings organized by STOP, personal conversations with the member associations and attending various faculty association meetings.
A second priority for STOP is the bringing together of the various study associations our ‘’city of keys’’ (Leiden) is rich of. We do this on the aforementioned times when the study associations come together, and to speak about their concerns. We organize StOP meetings to share experiences and tips on for example the different types of acquisition done by the member associations, so that our members in this area can learn from each other. This year we will organize an Interfacultary Congress, where all our student associations are welcome, so the various students of the faculties and disciplines will be able to take a look at the fields they normally not necessarily encounter in their studies.
Our members can thereby always come to us when they encounter problems within their administrative year. If this were the case, the STOP can give advice based on a comprehensive vision on the issue and how to solve them.
