We are a new initiative of united Christian students who want to be the critical voice in the Student Council. Our core values are responsibility, equity, honesty, transparency and stewardship. Starting from those values we want to stimulate personal development, improve and maintain quality of education and remain with a social university while it is growing. The courses can be extended with a more critical view on science; students have to develop their own opinion during their study. In a growing university we want to emphasise that small student associations are still needed and that financial compensation should stay the same. Students with problems like loneliness should be supported by a student pastor and student psychologists. the staff and facilities have to grow along with the university, the quality of education should stay the same and enough working places should be available. CSF believes in responsible growth with maintaining the current level of education or our university. Please vote CSF during the next Student Council elections!
