Community building

‘Our faculty has so many courses and students that I think that community building is an important term,' Jonatan explains. ‘Seeking a common thread to make all those different students feel like Humanities students - and not only African Studies or Art History students, for example - is something I want to work on during my assessorship. A lot of students do not yet feel really involved or active in thinking about the university or are not sure whether their opinions matter. Often, therefore, it is up to individuals who are a little more at the forefront and more easily make their voices heard to make decisions.’
