Next to all our internal affairs, we do collaborate with all the TSB associations. We do that by multiple workgroups we implemented. This way the associations and we are able to provide better events and information.
The different workgroups are:
The Acquisition Workgroup serves as a means to share knowledge and experience by giving the External affairs officers the opportunity to discuss the portfolios and share tips and tricks. In this workgroup the external
affairs officers from the study associations will participate. This year the Acquisition Workgroup will be hosted by Stoyan Keranov. In the Acquisition Workgroup the following board members of the Study Associations take part: Gino (Complex), Merel (INPUT), Filipa (POLIS), Izaskun (Versot)
Faculty Association IDEA aims to provide students of Tilburg School of Social and Behavioral Sciences with useful training and information. The activity workgroup will organize formal and informal activities in the academic year of 2022-2023.
These activities will be organized in collaboration with the five Study Associations. The formal activites have a focus on career-orientation and/or study related subjects. In addition, informal activities will be organized to promote interaction between TSB students. One of those activities will be the BEHAVE cantus, held at main partner the Boekanier. This year the activity workgroup will be hosted by Sven Varwijk. In the Activity Workgroup the following board members of the Study Associations take part: Myrthe (Complex), Amber (INPUT), Sem (POLIS), Naomi (SPS-NIP) & Ilana (Versot).
The Internationalization Workgroup aims to improve the dynamic internationalization process within the faculty. The three central keypoints of this workgroup are: communication, developing new initatives and improving the integration. Within the workgroup, current developments are discussed, to collectively work on solutions for complex issues and to initiate new ideas within the faculty. These ideas and initiatives are meant to give the international student a better and more integrated position within their study and the faculty.
Next to this, the Internationalization Workgroup is responsible for the organization of at least one activity per year that focuses on internationalization. Lastly, the Internationalization Workgroup works as a means to provide information about the Faculty Association and Study Associations among international TSB students. In this workgroup one board member of each study association will participate. This year the Internationalization workgroup will be hosted by Stoyan Keranov. In the Internationalization Workgroup the following board members of the Study Associations take part: Gino (Complex), Sterre (INPUT), Joy’L (POLIS), Agnese (SPS-NIP) Ilana (Versot)
The platform meetings are meetings which are weekly held with all associations of the TSB. It can be a pretty busy meeting when everybody joins. The parties that attend these meetings are Active TSB, Complex, IDEA, INPUT, POLIS, SPS-NIP, Stimulus, Versot and the student assessor of the TSB. Within these meetings numerous topics are discussed. From talking about the elections with Active TSB and Stimulus to talking about the labour market activities of all associations. Next to the more serious side of this workgroup, we also like to have drinks with each other. This year Platform will be hosted by Sascha Dallinga. In Platform the following board members of the TSB Associations take part: Fenne (Active TSB), Dito (Complex), Ina (INPUT), Joy’L (POLIS), Igor (SCT), Britt (SPS-NIP), Maxine (Stimulus), Izaskun (Versot)
The secretary workgroup is a workgroup consisting out of all the secretaries of the study associations and IDEA. The secretary of IDEA ‘leads’ this workgroup and makes sure to schedule the meetings. In these meetings we will update each other of how things are going, and we also help each other when someone is experiencing difficulties. It can be very helpful to exchange ideas and knowledge about our secretary tasks, so you can apply several insights to your own association.
The Treasurer Workgroup aims to provide help to the TSB treasurers. The workgroup contains all current treasurers of TSB. When a treasurer has a question or needs advice, the treasurer workgroup will help. We will discuss current developments and problems, which are related to the tasks of a treasurer.
