Ref PR relaunch: Help shape our social media and communication platforms!

Dear students,

the Public Relations working group will meet for the first time in the winter semester 2022/2023 on Friday, 11/11/2022, at 8 pm.

The meeting will take place in the building of the Student Council at Turnstraße 7, 91054 Erlangen (entrance in the backyard) in room 01.013 on the 1st floor (through the kitchen). The meeting will take place under 3G rules. I still ask, if possible, to test yourselves up to 24h before.

The Ref PR takes care of public relations, i.e. we want to promote events and topics around the university among the students and the public. This includes the creation of info videos, maintenance of the Stuve blog, poster, flyer, and sticker advertising for events, creation of social media posts, and communication in all directions, …

Since in the last semesters the unit, unfortunately, had too few active people, we want to relaunch the unit. Among others, the following topics should be taken up (again):

  • Stuve regulars’ table
  • Stuve Coach
  • (Live) reports from various festivals
  • Stuve merch
  • Stuve news in reel format
  • different actions/events (e.g. Stuve-Christmas market, Speeddating,..)
  • and much more

If needed, food will be ordered. Therefore we ask you to register here until 10.11.2022, so that we can plan better.

We are looking forward to having many participants.

 

News from Stuve


As announced in the last Stuve newsletter, we had a Jour Fixe with the Vice President for People Prof. Andreas Hirsch on October 24. Among other things, we had a lively exchange on the topic of menstrual articles in unit toilets. We are happy to announce that the topic has finally gained momentum at the university and that a pilot phase will be planned soon.

We are also excited to announce that the Stuve has been awarded the FAU Medal of Merit for its excellent, critical and constructive cooperation over the past years. Since this honor is personal and cannot be awarded to institutions, Lara Savannah Ebbinghaus and Michael Ruppert accepted it on behalf of the Stuve as senators and members of the Covid crisis team of the last term. Previously, this high honor had been awarded exclusively to professors.

The big event of the last weeks was the Dies academicus, the 279th birthday of our FAU. There, as every year, the Stuve gave a speech, this time represented by Büşra Başol and Lara Ebbinghaus. In the speech we appreciated the good cooperation with different groups at FAU, but also made a lot of important criticisms and pointed out grievances.

Since the climate crisis and also the current energy crisis illustrate how urgently a mobility turnaround is needed, we have spoken out in favor of a 29 € per month ticket (as a student version of the 49 € ticket) and are also co-signers of a letter that went to our state government. In addition, we submitted an initiative proposal at the last meeting of the State Asten Conference (our Bavarian state student representation), which was passed unanimously.

Recently, there has been a vacancy in the Speaker’s Council and we are looking for you! That is, if you are interested in helping to shape the student representation and the university. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us without obligation at stuve-sprat@fau.de. You can apply for this position via this email address as well as at the next Student Council meeting.

FAU Award for Teaching and Award for good Teaching

Teaching is alongside researching one of the big tasks of a university, even if it is sometimes not recognized as much.

To value teaching, the FAU awards one junior scientist per faculty a prize for teaching. Additionally, the Bavarian Ministry of Science, Research and Art awards two lecturers at the FAU a prize for good teaching.

We as Students can make suggestions of lecturers to our deans of studies, who we think taught well and innovatively  so that they have a greater chance of being recognized for their effort.
