Higher education Democratic Green Digitisation List – HDGDL

We, the Juso Hochschulgruppe, Up.rising, the Grüne Hochschulgruppe, the Bündnis freundschaftlicher Fachschaften – BFF and other committed students have put together a senate list! Our goal is to get all two senator seats and the two deputy seats, i.e. to get more than 75% of the votes.

All information on the election (including information on postal voting) can be found here: https://www.uni-potsdam.de/de/wahlen/senat-fr

You can find all the people on our list below.

HDGDL Election Programme

For a WE in the university – building trust with other status groups

In the last year in particular, parts of the student senators have ensured that the culture of debate in the senate has suffered. Instead of constructive criticism and committed cooperation, the focus was often on personal profiling or the search for a way to scandalise. We would like to see ourselves again as part of the university, advancing the university and its student body through well-developed concepts and applications.

Strengthening voluntary work

In the next legislative period, we want to implement the concepts that were developed in the work group for voluntary work to strengthen these work in the student and academic committees. This includes the design of a new participation website, which will provide centrally collected information for committee members and interested parties, but also the awarding of credit points to student representatives to enable all students to work in such committees. The certification of committee work by the university is another measure we want to implement.

Workspaces – Even on Sunday! (according to Corona)

Many students depend on being able to study properly at the weekend (especially during the exam period). But if you wanted to meet in a group, for example, to calculate the maths mock exam problems together on the blackboard, things have looked bad up to now. After 4 p.m. on Saturday or the whole of Sunday, there is no possibility of getting into the university buildings (unfortunately, there are no library rooms for sensible group work). Therefore, we demand that at least one building per campus is also open for the entire weekend. (Of course, this demand should only be implemented after Corona has been overcome).

Living Solidarity – Providing Free Menstrual Items

We have already achieved that there is a pilot project at the university in which freely accessible menstrual products are to be offered in selected toilets. We want to continue this pilot project and eventually expand it to all toilets at the university. We also advocate for a switch to sustainable menstrual products.

Participation – With own representation in the Presidential Board of the University

As is already common practice at other universities, we want to introduce the office of the student vice-president at our university. We hope that this office will enable good university policy ideas to be passed on more quickly to the right people at the university. In addition, the vice-president could take part in internal discussions and represent the students‘ opinion there. This person should be elected by direct vote.

We want our campuses to be more beautiful!

In the legislative period, we want to bring forward the installation of new desks and seating at the university. We also want to bring the idea of „outdoor chalkboards“, where learning can also take place outdoors, to the senate.

No obligation to experiment on animals

We advocate that students (e.g. of biology, also in the teaching profession) should no longer be obliged to carry out animal experiments. Animal experiments could be carried out in elective courses where absolutely necessary. We will contact the FSR BCE about this.

Strengthen diversity and equality

We want to talk to the equal opportunities team to discuss, for example, the possibility of introducing decentralised diversity officers.We also want to work towards achieving quotas in appointment committees. For example, we could propose that there should be at least one female professor on such appointment committees.

More involvement in teaching

We want to strengthen student participation in teaching and study matters in commissions, e.g. by giving the student councils more say in planning teaching, or in finding central measures for teaching at our university (teaching mission statement). Currently, we are actively working for more target group-oriented and diversity-sensitive teaching. Accessibility, mobility promotion, blended learning, etc. continue to play a role in this.
