Declaration of the FSR

As the FSR we support the distribution of credit points to committee members based on Austrian universities and the HU Berlin. For more details look here: Concept

For the following Higher Education Act Amendment, the FSR worked out suggestions that are now to be presented to the assembly of the councils and integrated by the university policy speaker. Among other things we demand:

  • A restructuring of the finding committee for the election of the future university president
  • more working- and group rooms for the students
  • an effective civil clause, inspired by Bremen's university law

The specific demands are described here.

We support the VeFa's letter to the university president, where student problems that occur with the Corona semester are highlighted. You can read the letter here.

The FSR MaPhy supports the student catalog of demands regarding the state of universities, which can be found on solidarsemester.de. Particular importance in our eyes holds the automatic extension of the BAföG eligibility period, the suspension of compulsory de-registration, as well as the re-suspension of compulsory de-registration, as well as the enabling of loaning in the university library.

The FSR MaPhy demands from the next BAföG amendment that other voluntary work also will lead to an extension of the eligibility period. Resolution

The FSR MaPhy criticizes the university's decision to forbid the university group “uPride” from hoisting the rainbow flag on the flag mast of the university. In this, we support the AstA's argument and stand in support of the demand to be granted permission of using the university's own flag mast for this purpose in the future. The AstA's arguments can be found here.

In consideration of the AStAs years-long endeavor to introduce a civil clause into the University of Potsdam and as part of the lastest discussions, the plenary session of the MaPhy student council has, on the 13th of January 2014, voted in favor of campaigning for „that in this university, no more financial support can be accepted from military establishments (institutions and companies); in particular scientific research with the direct intention to enable the killing of people is prohibited. For this scientific research can be restricted. Furthermore, the acceptance of third-party funding (especially that of such military establishments) must be treated completely transparently.“
Related to this it was also decided uniformly that, for the realization of these goals and for an increase in research's independence from financial funds provided by the economy and military „the student council supports an increase of state funds for universities. “
We of the FSR MaPhy now hope for an even more intensive, well-balanced confrontation of the topic inside this university and express explicit support for the demand published in the declarationof the FSRs "Military Studies" from the 12th of January 2014 for a “productive and (result-wise) open-minded discussion”.
