In a society where knowledge economy obtains a leading position, an important role is played by education and research. But, as we know the way of obtaining knowledge is challenging enough. However, even this complex process can be made interesting and effective! That is why Student Academic Council has been working hard for the good of the university for the past 3,5 years.

Student Academic Council is a leading self-governing organization that joins volunteer university students by promoting conditions of transparency, honesty and openness of the educational process.

SAC is a link between students and teachers to make their communication efficient, to enable students to bring to their university administration their view upon the learning process.

SAC protects the rights and interests of the students, their right to participation in the governing the University, provides an opportunity for creative and personal realization, developing leadership skills of the students.

It should be noted that the Student Academic Council represents the interests of the entire student community, a member of which you become, entering the University.

There are 5 main directions in the work of the Council: improvement of the quality of education, monitoring of the training process, cooperation with departments in management of the training process, training ethics and educational work, public relations. According to these
areas of work special committees function in each department and at the university level.

Student Academic Council:

  • initiates measures to improve the quality of university education and introduction of new educational technologies ;
  • organizes meetings , workshops , training with representatives of businesses and well-known economists ( Larissa Burakova , Eric Naiman , Victor Pinzenyk, Igor Mazepa, Alexander Suhoniako and others)
  • organizes and conducts tours to companies, factories and plants (plant "Obolon", "Rosynka" and others .)
  • contributes to learning and teaching materials (in cooperation with library and university departments );
  • explores different aspects of the educational process in order to identify its problems and drawbacks, develops proposals to solve them ;
  • creates conditions for advisory support for the first year students in compiling of their individual educational plan ( selective discipline) and for the fourth year students to study the Master's degree programs;
  • collaborates with the departments in the organization (if applicable) counseling sessions for students who have trouble mastering certain subjects;
  • involved in solving conflicts arising in training activities ;
  • carries out activities aimed at promoting social responsibility (charity fairs , trips to the orphanage ) and historical consciousness (Day of Ukrainian culture, commemorating the victims of famine, Krut heroes, Victory Day ).

It’s natural that the Student Academic Council protects the interests of students. The University has accumulated experience of treatment of written statements of the students on various issues, when they asked SAC for help and assistance in certain cases.

It should be noted that the Student Academic Council is empowered with special responsibility:
- orders for dismissals, renewals and transfer of students must be agreed with SAC. To make the right decision or sign an order SAR assembles a special commission at the end of the term, that considers each case. SAC also participates in the scholarship committees.

Each academic group has a representative of SAC (the monitor ), who represents the interests of students of a certain academic group at the meeting. Activity of the monitor is regulated by the Regulations for monitor. But this does not mean that it is only the monitor who can attend the meetings of SAC. All students of KNEU have an equal right to participate in student self-government and representation in Student Academic Council.

Student Academic Council is a practical school for those who want to try their hand as a manager, administrator, leader, it is the possibility to implement socially important projects that will be beneficial to the entire student community. There are still a lot of useful events and interesting meetings. So we are happy to invite you to join activities aimed at the best results!
