ISP Threatened by Master Plan
Though this is supposedly an independent body which does not represent the administration, Bemmelmans is adamant in her opinion that Somebody who is not a student would be less appropriate to handle the problems and concerns of the students". Bemmelmans continues, There are a couple of issues at stake here. Foreign students have different needs from Dutch students. The ISP is only 2 years old but we've seen that it is vital for the MSc students to have a voice in the university. Now one of the problems could be that if the Chairman of the University council has too little time for the ISP or does not delegate the responsibility to someone else, then maybe they will cancel the ISP altogether."
Revelation of such a plan led the discussion to the evaluation of the ISP. Second year students voiced their concern that first year students should become more involved in making the ISP more of a priority.
