The authored student body

In June 2012, the parliament of Baden-Württemberg has decided to reintroduce the authored student body (Verfasste Studierendenschaf - VS). The student body means that there is a legally established student representation. In January 2013, the ballot vote took place for the constitution of the authored student body. From 10th till 14th of June the student parliament (StuPa) and the Student Council Executive Board members were elected for the first time in the VS. Since 29.10.2013 the first authored student council is in office.

The General Student Committee (AStA) is the executive of the student body. Its members are elected by the student parliament. They represent the students politically opinion in accordance with the StuPa decisions.

The AStA is composed of the Chair and different units (Finance Unit, Department of Culture, ...), each responsible for a particular subject area.
