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.


FAU for Peace: minute for peace in Iran on November 17 at 6:00 p.m.

The student representation organizes a get-together for peace on November 17, 2022 at 6 p.m. on the lawn in the Schlossgarten Erlangen (in front of the equestrian monument in the direction of the fountain).

Here we show solidarity with the courageous students and university staff and protesters in Iran, whose life and limb is currently highly endangered.

There will be a short speech, a poem, and a moment of silence together. Afterwards we will have the opportunity to discuss the topic together.


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 You can apply for this position via this email address as well as at the next Student Council meeting.


Development of the FAU: Two ministers answer your questions

On November 10, 2022, 12:15 – 13:45 in the lecture hall C1 in the New Chemical Center, Nikolaus-Fiebiger-Str.10, 91058 Erlangen, UG 1 there will be a discussion with the Bavarian Minister of Science Markus Blume and Minister of the Interior Joachim Herrmann.

For us students, good teaching and learning spaces and also the condition of our campus are a very important component of our studies and also the Well Being during our studies.

For a long time, FAU was known as a rather dilapidated university, investments were postponed and delayed. In recent years, some projects have started to move. But is that enough? What about sustainable transformation? And by when will we have the infrastructure we need?

The panel is a great opportunity to follow up with your questions and, of course, learn about future building development at our FAU. For more info, feel free to check out:
