Lijst Calimero

Lijst Calimero is the student party that focuses on high quality education at the University of Groningen. We think that every UG student needs to be certain to receive high quality education and a valuable degree. Excellent study facilities and study guidance, as well as considerate internationalization, preparation for the labour market, and sufficient room for self-development contribute to a pleasant study environment in which every student can develop and grow optimally.

For more than 12 years already, our faction works hard to secure the value of your degree. We critically control the policies of the board of directors and give advice, and we bring forward our own initiatives.

Quality is a choice. Make yours, choose Lijst Calimero.

What do we do?

As a student party within the University Council we have the right of consent, the right of advice, and the right of initiative. We can propose policies by means of memos and questions during University Council meetings.

On the 25th of October the first activity of the Young Alumni Network was organized, following our memo that proposed its installation. Also the formal recognition of extracurricular activities, the addition of English language skills to the qualitative requirements for docents, and the opening of the library of the Harmony building during weekends in exam periods were initiatives proposed by Lijst Calimero.

Lijst Calimero staat voor haar verkiezingsprogramma en maakt elk jaar weer grote punten waar. Deze successen zijn onlosmakelijk verbonden met de realiteitszin die de partij kenmerkt; geen geschreeuw, geen populisme, maar standpunten waar je van op aan kan. De kwaliteit waar de partij zich voor inzet voor ons onderwijs, levert zij zelf in de universiteitsraad.

De kwaliteit van het onderwijs is het belangrijkste speerpunt van Lijst Calimero. Ik vind dat je als student zeker moet kunnen zijn van een uitdagende studie van hoge kwaliteit, met bijvoorbeeld docenten die goed Engels spreken, hoorcolleges die je online kunt terugkijken en automatische tentameninschrijving. Een tweede punt waar Lijst Calimero zich hard voor maakt is ontwikkeling binnen en buiten je studie, door aandacht te besteden aan het Honours College, een tweede studie, stages en collegegeldvrij besturen.

I want an university that excels in providing world class teaching and learning environments, a learning community where both international and Dutch students alike can thrive and, most importantly, feel at home during the time of their studies.. I believe Calimero is a great choice for those who recognize themselves in these values.
