The Student Council (SC) is the body of the Faculty’s students that represents the interests of the students. In its operation, it is professional, independent and impartial. Comprising a President, Vice President, Secretary and representatives of study programs, every Student Council operates on an annual mandate. Each year, in the first half of October, the SC announces elections based on the Dean’s decision. It consists of eight students, ensuring representation from students of all years and study levels. In the first session of the SC, convened by the President, members elect new President and Vice President who will represent and advocate for the students. The Student Council is quorate, when majority of members are present at the session. The SC sends invitations and records of meetings to the Dean, informing him of election results and notifying him of SC members, by November 15 of the same year.

- it discusses and forms opinions on all issues regarding student rights and obligations;

SASS student council for the academic year 2023/24 represent:
I am a 2nd-year student of the Master’s study program Intercultural Management and for the second year, I am a member of the SASS Student Council. I gladly accepted the role of President of the Student Council and membership of other bodies of SASS, as I perceive it as an opportunity for a more intense connection between students and the Faculty. During this mandate, I will strive for an active and permanent exchange of opinions and proposals between students and faculty authorities, the goal of which will be the improvement of study programs and content. I am ambitious, communicative and open-minded, I like to help and listen to anyone who needs my help or advice. I am employed in a public company and I am also the President of the company’s trade union.
I am a second-year student of Social Management and have been serving as the Vice President of the Student Council for the second year. My involvement in the Student Council stems from a deep desire to actively participate in shaping the study process and the development of extracurricular activities. My commitment to this role is demonstrated through efforts to create better study conditions and improve the student experience at our Faculty. I believe that my ideas and initiatives help building a stronger, more inclusive academic community. My goal is to continue acting as a bridge between student needs and faculty administration, ensuring that student voices are heard and taken into account.
I am a 2nd-year student of the Master’s study program, Psychosocial Counseling. At the faculty, I obtained the title of Graduate of Psychosocial Assistance, as well as years of experience in active cooperation with the faculty. All of the above connected me even more with students, professors and other professionals. I am extremely grateful to the Faculty, as it enables me to grow both, professionally and personally. This is exactly why I think, it is important that I joined the Student Council before the end of my studies, where I can contribute to the high-quality functioning of the Faculty with other colleagues. I believe that hand in hand, we can create a successful and safe environment, both for students and other professionals.
I am a third-year doctoral student in Sociology. As an undergraduate student in the Applied Social Studies program, I had the opportunity to experience studying at the School of Advanced Social Studies. After completing my undergraduate degree, I continued and completed my studies in the Master’s program in Intercultural Management. I enjoy helping other students because I believe that, at times, we students can learn a lot from each other; not only through understanding theories but also by gaining real and practical experiences.
In my role as a student and concurrently as a colleague/assistant at SASS, I intend to listen to your needs and represent your voice to both, my peers and the faculty authorities. Together with you, I aim to shape a successful and proud academic community. Despite my engineering background, my knowledge and interests mostly include sociological research, management and commercial consultancy. I emphasize the significance of interpersonal relationships and emotions. As a tutor for doctoral students, I am also dedicated to supporting students at this stage of their studies. This year, I am an active member of the Scientific and Research Committee and Research Ethics Committee within the Student Council.
I am a 24-year-old student in the last year of the Master’s program Intercultural Management, and before that I graduated in Business Economics. This year I will be a member of the Student Council for the second time. I accepted this position because I think I will be able to gain a lot of new experience in this role, which I will be able to use in my future career. Active participation in the faculty bodies is essential for me to co-create the future of the Faculty.
I have decided that during my studies at SASS, I will be as involved as possible in – let’s say – extracurricular activities. I see the Student Council as one of them. This is my second year in a row with the Student Council. It is also the second time, I am a member of any of the Faculty’s committees; in the academic year 2023/24 it is the Human Resources Committee. I see both roles as an interesting challenge. I consider the active participation of students in faculty bodies to be essential for our pleasant coexistence at this Faculty. I will be happy to forward to the Faculty suggestions from my fellow students for possible improvements or for an even better quality of the study programme.

My name is Stefan Simeunović and I am in the second year of Social Management. I come from Bosnia and Herzegovina. I applied for the Student Council because I want to be a medium between the students at our faculty and the Faculty. The Student Council is there for all the students and it exists precisely because of them. My goal is, with my modest contribution to the Student Council, to improve student days and the stay of all students of our Faculty. I want us to finish faculty in the best possible way as more educated and richer for a multitude of knowledge and skills. If you have any requests, proposals or a problem related to the Faculty, please feel free to email me, I will be happy to answer you and open a discussion at the session on your topic.

Together with the other members of the student council, I will endeavor to make the Faculty even better and more student-friendly.
I am a second-year undergraduate student, majoring in Psychosocial Support. I have a strong desire for acquiring new knowledge in areas such as psychosocial skills and interpersonal relationships.
