 Why be a FIGRI Student Representative?

It is a space where the Faculty’s most important academic, regulatory, and disciplinary decisions are made. Likewise, ideas and projects arising from the student community are processed. It is a democratic and participatory scenario where students’ proposals may be implemented to improve their studies, services, and other conditions

Being a student representative strengthens leadership, expression, listening, coordination, and empathy skills in students. It develops the empowerment of the common problems of a faculty and the work for their improvement.
