Constituted student body

The bodies and organs of the Constituted Student Body (Verfasste Studierendenschaft, VS) represent the interests of the students of the respective university. The VSs themselves establish an organisational statute, which, at a central level, provides for a legislative body (plenum, student parliament, or similar) and an executive body with at least one chairperson.
We would like to meet regularly with the elected representations of the VSs in order to find out which topics are currently important to the students.  
That is why a "Round Table of the Constituted Student Body" is held with the Managing Director of the Studierendenwerk Stuttgart, Marco Abe, four times a year. Our warm invitation: As an elected representative of the VS, please come to the Round Table with your questions and suggestions on behalf of all students!
