What's happening in Local Government....
By-elections to Faculty Student Government Councils
Do you want to act for the benefit of those studying at your Department? Have an impact on the decisions made by the Local Government? Get ready for the upcoming by-elections to the Faculty Student Government Councils!
Student Council is made up of all students at our University - including you! It is the sole statutory representative of our affairs. We represent the needs of the University student community both within the University (before the University Authorities) and in the inter-University environment.
That's right! We are the ones who review your scholarship applications. The University Scholarship Committee (UKS) has 7 students as members, while the University Scholarship Appeals Committee (UOKS) consists of 3 students. An administrative staff member also sits on both bodies, providing an advisory voice to those on the committee.
We always try to process applications in the best interest of the students!
The University consists of many organizational units, and not all of our comments are always recognized. Our task, as a liaison between the student community and the University Authorities, is to discuss the issues you raise with those responsible for the operation of the University.
In addition, we represent students at PJAIT in bodies such as the University Senate and Faculty Councils (including program committees, established within the faculties).
We actively participate in events held on the campus of our University, as well as organize our own!
If you enjoy the social life, you are sure to find yourself at events such as the Groundbreaking or Midwinter organized by our Student Government. This is a great opportunity to integrate together, celebrate minor and major student successes or warm up on the dance floor before the next challenges we will take on. :-)
As a Local Government, we often cooperate with representations of other student governments, both in Warsaw and nationwide. We belong to the Agreement of Capital Non-Public Universities (SUN) and the Forum of Non-Public Universities (FUN).
Both groupings bring together student governments of non-public universities, where SUN operates within Warsaw universities, while FUN is nationwide in scope.
The Parliament of Students of the Republic of Poland (PSRP), in turn, is made up of all students studying in the Republic of Poland, including us! :-)
Bodies of self-government
Student Council make up all the students at the University - that's a bit much. That's why we operate through the Student Government bodies. Each of them has its own peculiarities. Some can be joined as a result of general elections, but there are also those to which the central legislative body decides on delegates (e.g., representation of the Local Government in the bodies of the University).
Throughout the year, you can apply to Student Council committees, which are responsible for organizing cultural events, working with foreign students or promoting our activities.

Delegates in the bodies of the University
As Student Council , our job is to represent student interests, and it wouldn't be so easy if it weren't for the fact that student representatives sit on the University's collegiate bodies.
The University Senate is an important body that has a significant impact on student life. Its competencies include, among other things, setting the University's regulations, terms and conditions of enrollment, curricula, as well as the University's development strategy. The Senate is also responsible for graduation issues, the University's regulations on copyrights, and makes decisions on other important University matters. It is an important body that influences the quality of education and the development of the University. Up to four representatives representing students may be appointed to the University Senate Student Council .
The Faculty Council plays an important role in academic life from the student's perspective. Its powers include, among other things, adopting a strategy for faculty development and reviewing the dean's reports on faculty activities. The Council also has a say in the creation of new majors and specializations, evaluation of the educational process, development of the student research movement, and decision-making on other important faculty matters. This is an important body that affects the quality of education and the development of the faculty. Up to four representatives representing students can be appointed to each Faculty Council Student Council .
The University Disciplinary Committee for Academic Teachers is an important body responsible for maintaining discipline and ethics among academic teachers. Its composition includes five members, two of whom are students, appointed to the commission for a one-year term by Student Council. The commission is a key tool for maintaining the accountability of university teachers in accordance with the law.
The Student Disciplinary Committee and the Disciplinary Appeals Committee play a key role in maintaining discipline and ethics among students. The two instances of the committees are composed of two students appointed by Student Council, and their term of office is one year. These committees are crucial in the process of resolving student disciplinary cases.
The University Scholarship Committee, together with its appeal body, are responsible for reviewing applications for financial aid for students of the University. Importantly, this committee is composed of students and an administrative employee of the University (without voting rights in scholarship decisions). This means that scholarship decisions will always be considered with the student's best interests in mind.
As Student Council , we run two team-building trips during the academic year. Each of them lasts an average of 5 days.
The first is Integral - this is a summer trip, dedicated to those just beginning their adventure with our University. It is a great opportunity to get acquainted with other students at the University before classes start.
The second trip is Wintegral - this trip debuted last year and was a great success. There is nothing better than relaxing together in the mountains before the start of the next semester skiing and enjoying the thermal pools!
