Get to know our Student Council

The Student Council is the bridge from the Student Body to the university's faculty and administration. We are here to ensure your voices are heard, your ideas valued, and your concerns addressed.

Beyond representation, we are dedicated to enriching the Frankfurt School community. Whether it is through supporting Frankfurt School’s initiatives, organizing memorable parties, or hosting events together with other universities, we are committed to bringing us all closer together.
