EiABC Student Council 2016/2017
EiABC students constitute not only the most vital component of the institute; they are the mere reason why EiABC is in existence. To channel and voice their interests, comments, concerns, and suggestions, EiABC established since it's start in 2009 a strong and active Student Council. The Student Council is a representative body composed of student representatives from each batch and program, chosen by their respective classmates. The Student Council represents therefore the largest interest group of EiABC and is acting to their advantage. Two members of the Student Council have a seat in the EiABC Council, the highest decision making organ of EiABC.
Next to the representative character of the Student Council, it also organizes social and extracurricular activities such as the Social Clubs, the Environmental Days at EiABC, the Best Teaching Award etc. The Student Council works in very close collaboration with the Dean of Students in terms of provision of dormitory space and food, establishes rules and regulation for a social and fair student community, is part of discipline committees, helps freshman students with their orientation, and therefore acts in a social, ethical, democratic and transparent way to the benefit of all students of EiABC.
