Yashi Tripathi chair Faculty Student Council Economics and Business

‘My name is Yashi and I'm the Chair of the FSR at Economics and Business for this academic year. I'm currently a third-year Economics and Business Economics student. Apart from my responsibilities at the FSR and my studies, I have a great passion for reading. Psychological thrillers happen to be my favourite genre. I'm open to book swaps or joining a book club at any time!’

What is your role within the FSR?

'The Faculty Student Council (FSR) represents students in discussions with the dean regarding policies. My role as chair of the FSR includes maintaining strong relationships with external parties, ensuring the council's efficient operation. Students and organizations looking to collaborate with us or seeking our assistance can get in touch with us.’

What are the key themes for the FSR this year?

‘Our primary goal is to amplify the students' voices and support initiatives to enhance student well-being. This includes ongoing improvements to the student experience and the creation of a sense of community among students.’

‘In the field of education and research, we work closely with the education directors. In addition, we advocate for initiatives that have a positive impact on education, such as peer tutoring. Moreover, we assist in organizing events where we are present and interact with students. An example of this is the monthly film night, which is the perfect opportunity to unwind after intense study periods. We aim to organise these throughout the whole academic year!’

How can students get in touch with you?

'You are always welcome to drop by our office at REC E0.06. Or send me an email at yashi.fsr.feb@gmail.comExternal link to set up a coffee meeting.'
