#30 Iris van der Wal
Chair Bernlef

Why am I a candidate?

I support Lijst Calimero, because they are a party that I trust to represent my interests as a student. During this academic year, I’ve been in contact with Reinier because of my role as President of FFJ Bernlef. This showed me a lot about what Calimero does for the students. It is the party that delivers a better University and I know they thave in-dept knowledge and act with the interests of students in mind.

Why vote for me?

Lijst Calimero stays in touch with a lot of organisations in Groningen and therefore knows what matters to students. I always had good conversations with them. They ask for my views and are taking into account what matters to me and Bernlef. In the past year Calimero achieved a lot when it comes to the developments on the topic of mental wellbeing of students and small-scale education. These are subjects that matter to me as a student.

More student psychologists have been hired, a reflection room has been created in the University library and the second edition of the Wellbeing week has taken place. A new minor in Rhetorics has been developed and 5 million euros are spent additionally to improve the student-staff ratio.
