Candidate student representatives

POC Philosophy Candidates (EN) (6 positions)

Anke Devyver 

I would like to apply for a position as student representative in the POC Philosophy and the Faculty Counsil. After five years at the HIW, I will be finishing my Research Master next academic year. I believe that my longtime experience with the ins and outs of our institute, my experience as a student representative in the POC last year, and the broad circle of students I became acquainted with (both in the Dutch and in the international program), make me a good candidate.

My motivation primarily stems from impressions I gained the past year: A lot of work is yet to be done to make the student representation function more smoothly. Moreover, I grew very attached to our institute during my time as a student here, so the development of the policy of education is certainly dear to me.

Joseph McKenna

A dual United Kingdom/Australian citizen, I came to Leuven in 2017 to start the international BA in Philosophy at the Institute. Now in my third year of the BA, I hope to provide a voice for international students as an international representative of the Education function of NFK, and concurrently the international POC. Having an international representative on the Education function is essential in enabling the Education team to jointly report the views of both Dutch and international students to the POC.

POC  Wijsbegeerte Candidates (NL) (4 positions)

Joëlle Doek

Mijn naam is Joëlle Doek. Ik zit in het tweede jaar van mijn bachelor filosofie met minor sociologie. Afgelopen jaar ben ik studentenvertegenwoordiger geweest in de POC en faculteitsraad. Hierdoor heb ik al een beetje ervaring met hoe de vertegenwoordiging in zijn werk gaat. Het is mij afgelopen jaar nog duidelijker geworden dat veel studenten niet weten hoe de vertegenwoordiging in zijn werk gaat (en sommige studenten weten niet dat ze vertegenwoordigd worden). Komend jaar wil ik mij hiervoor inzetten. Samen met studenten hoop ik tot genuanceerde standpunten te komen die ik, samen met de andere vertegenwoordigers, kan verdedigen aan de faculteit!

Elise Weterings

Mijn naam is Elise Weterings en ik zit momenteel in mijn tweede bachelor wijsbegeerte. Ik vind het belangrijk dat de studenten inspraak hebben in het beleid van ons instituut. Als onderwijsvertegenwoordiger wil ik me dan ook graag inzetten om de afstand te overbruggen tussen de studenten en de beleidsorganen van het HIW.

Joëlle Doek

My name is Joëlle Doek. I’m in the second year of my bachelor philosophy with the minor sociology. Last year, I’ve been a student representative in the POC and the faculty council. Because of this, I’ve a bit of experience with how the representation works. I noticed that a lot of students have no idea how the representation works (and some students don’t know that they’re represented). This will be my main aim next year. Together with the students I would like to form nuanced points of view. Which I can, together with the other representatives, defend at the faculty!
