From 21 to 24 March, a meeting of the U4 Student Network took place in Ghent, dealing with the central topic of 'Student Well-Being'. The U4 Student Network unites the various student associations and student representatives of the four partner institutions.
The U4 Student Network forms the framework for exchange and cooperation on various student-related themes, such as: student participation, quality assurance, internationalization, sustainability, and many more.
For this specific meeting, student delegations coming from all partner universities where present. Participants aimed to examine student well-being and inclusivity in different dimensions. Within various working groups, topics, such as inclusiveness, student hazing, mental health, and disability, were discussed.
The aim of the U4 Student Network meeting was to present a number of common recommendations, focusing on concrete examples of measures to improve student life and welfare at the university and in the daily activities of the students.
Taking place during the university's 200-year-celebration, guest students were offered an extensive program. This also included a cantus, an introduction to the city, and of course the dies natalis party.
