Representation: Assembly of International Students
LOKO International watches over international student rights at the KU Leuven. To make sure that we stay connected to the problems for international students, we founded the Assembly of International Students (AIS). The AIS will actively give input in the cases where LOKO International is working on and can also prepare cases that LOKO International misses.
The organ needs a president and two vice-presidents (education - social/diversity).
organizes the assemblies and keeps on overview on the cases that the assembly is working on.
The vice-president education
on cases regarding to educational topics for international student. A possible example for a case: "working out support for students who are not native English speakers for writing their course papers".
The vice-president social/diversity
works on cases regarding social matters in Leuven. This includes everything that is non-educational (e.g. student services (housing, pangaea, ...), Alma restaurants, ...). A possible example for a case: "working out a prayer space for people with a different religion".
You can also become a member of the AIS, to help the presidents out with some cases that are of interest for you.
Project assistance - helping out with the organization of our projects.
LOKO International also has some projects that need to be organized. Some of our projects are reoccuring. At the beginning of each semester we actively help organizing the Orientation Days, with e.g. the biggest International Party of the year in Alma 2 in September.
In November, we organize the Think Abroad Month (www.thinkabroad.be
), where we want to highlight some of the beauties of the internationalization of KU Leuven, but also sensitize students and the university about the problems that come along with it.
Our other task is to support projects of student associations in Leuven, so once in a while we help organizing an idea of student associations or students. And of course Flemish students can also become a volunteer. Interested in becoming part of the AIS or a volunteer? Then fill out this form and LOKO International will contact you soon.
