About the Student Council  

The Student Council (SC) is an autonomous body within AAU which represents students’ interests in developing strategy, policies, and programs of the university. In short, the SC represents and amplifies the student voice.

  • keep the students informed of relevant issues that affect their studies and status at AAU;
  • maintain effective communication and relations within AAU (serving as mediators between the students, the faculty and the school administration) and with the external communities;

  • ensure fair and democratic operations of this body;
  • promote integrity and ethical behavior within the AAU community;
  • help new students adjust to the student environment.
