The opportunities to get involved with stuvus are diverse and exciting - whether in the departments, each of which deals with a specific topic, or in the various working groups ( Arbeitskreise, AK), which implement a specific project. Do you have specific suggestions for improvement, want to implement an exciting project as part of a great team or just want to have a look at what stuvus has to offer? Then get in touch with us! We look forward to hearing from you!

Committees, Departments & Working Groups
There are a number of committees at the University of Stuttgart that represent students in university life. In general, these are:
The Senate makes central decisions, such as appointing new professors, the research orientation at the university or the establishment or revision of degree programmes. It is supported by the Academic Student Council (ASR) as the interface between the stuvus and the senate, responsible for the allocation of some funds and all topics related to teaching.
Together, these bodies ensure that students and their needs are represented in university policy and that their concerns are communicated.
The work of the central committees is supported by units and working groups dedicated to specific topics. If you would like to specialise in a particular topic, this is definitely the right place for you!
The departments are subgroups of the stuvus, which are dedicated to certain issues. These include, for example, looking after IT or promoting the idea of sustainability at the university.
