The General Student Council Assembly takes place at the beginning of each semester. As the name suggests, it is a gathering of the entire student council, in other words the student body therefore all students of a department. Since the MPI Student Council is a combination of three departments, there are three General Student Council Assemblies, one for Mathematics, one for Physics and one for Informatics. In recent years, a joint General Student Council Assembly has been established for all international students, which is being held in English. The General Student Council Assembly is the supreme body of a Student Council. In other words, it can set the direction for the active Student Council (students representation). Therefore, all students are invited to get involved. During the times when no General Student Council Assembly is scheduled, the General Student Council Assembly is represented by the Student Council Committee. Any student of the three departments can attend and get involved.
When do General Student Council Assemblies take place?
The General Student Council Assemblies all take place at the same time, typically from 10 to 12 a.m. on Wednesday in the third week of the semester, except if it is a holiday. The specific date and location will be announced in due time on our website. In order for all students to be able to participate, all lectures, exercises, seminars, internships, etc., are cancelled during that time.
