electoral program MAY 11-12 ELECTIONS 2021
On May 20 Uninformazione Tor Vergata will officially turn 6 years old. A relatively short period in the life of a person, but extremely wide and intense if you think of the growth of a university student. 6 years, for a University Association, is a very big period, in which many people follow one another, bringing experience, skills and opinions as well as doubts, mistakes and fears.
UIF was born with a very specific purpose: to help students to have a clearer and more conscious vision of what awaits them in the future and of their aptitudes and abilities. Improving the path of our peers means contributing to the improvement and growth of the entire University ecosystem and society. Yes, because for us University is much more than an institution, it is a unique and irreplaceable space for growth and comparison for everyone.
We believe that every student should live these years in the most intense way possible, taking risks and trying to improve what surrounds him; our philosophy is to put ourselves at the service of society to contribute to progress by improving ourselves.
In 6 years of associationism and over 40 initiatives organized we have had the opportunity to grow individually and as a group and to know closely the University of Tor Vergata, analyzing problems, potential and limitations. Based on this, we have developed a broad and detailed electoral program, with which we propose ourselves to the next student elections in May 2021. It is an ambitious, detailed and rational program that we are committed to carry out, as a group and individually, with all of ourselves, although without absolute guarantees that all of this will be realized in the next 2 years.
We are not asking you to vote for us, but to read all that we propose and freely choose whether to support us or not.
University’s services need to be strengthened and improved at several points to ensure a more efficient and engaging experience for the student community. In this sense we set ourselves the following macro-objectives:
Our proposals in this broad area of focus are divided below by area.
The problem of the secretarial offices has been accentuated during the pandemic period, creating various inconveniences for students, particularly at certain times such as matriculation, payment of taxes, etc.. The problems are mainly related to the lack of staff.
Below are our proposals in this area.
The initiatives of the Placement Office are essential to connect the University with the world of work and allow students to make informed and oriented choices for their future.
Below are our proposals in this area.
Psychological support service
The current period has emphasized the absolute importance of psychological support service for students. It should be adequately sponsored, and action should be taken to facilitate its access on a large scale.
To this end we ask for the allocation of more resources dedicated to this service in the next University budget.
We aim to improve communication between University and LazioDiSCo (the regional body for the Right to Study) so that the criteria of the calls for proposals for the right to study reflect the needs and requirements of the students, both from an economic and social point of view and in terms of personal and professional development.
The digitalization of services and processes is a fundamental prerogative for any company, both public and private, that pursues objectives of sustainability and innovation.
In this context, the proposals of UIF are the following.
UIF argues that sustainability and urban, civil and social redevelopment are fundamental objectives that University should set daily in all its administrative, political and executive actions.
In support of this, as a student association, we will work on projects of sustainable mobility, reduction of plastic use and waste and redevelopment of the areas surrounding University.
Below are our election proposals.
A University increasingly immersed in an international context and with a massive presence of foreign students must constantly think about the integration of international communities that attend, animate and color it. There are still too many “challenges” that international students have to face once they arrive in the difficult territory of Tor Vergata.
Here are our proposals so that the international community can integrate with the existing one in a perspective of multicultural and ethnic contamination and mutual support.
Take the course, study from the book, take the exam. Now repeat it until the day you graduate. If you think university life can be more than this, then you too will support our Association’s vision with us.
Studying is fundamental, but so are all those experiences during these years that allow us to get to know ourselves better, our aptitudes and abilities and what we really want to do. The key word of our century for the world of students, in an increasingly connected and information-rich world, is orientation. The University must do more to ensure that each student is better able to orientate himself or herself on his or her future and to make informed choices. To do this, it is necessary to significantly increase the number of all those experiences and opportunities for interaction with the professional, institutional, social and civil world. The University we dream of is the one in which, during your lunch break, you can meet and talk freely with a researcher, an entrepreneur, a manager, an international volunteer, or any other individual who can bring value to your path by sharing their experience.
Below are our proposals for the improvement of the University placement.
Tor Vergata is undoubtedly one of the universities with the greatest difficulties from a logistical point of view. Hence the great difficulty in involving the university community in extra-didactic initiatives.
Imagine an innovative environment in which to return to live the University, full of new and varied activities that can range from discovering the magic of Rome to participating in popular activities offered by student associations and the University; this is the university life we want for us and for all students.
Here are some of our proposals to improve the University experience and the student campus.
As mentioned earlier, Tor Vergata is one of the universities with the greatest difficulties from a logistical point of view, considering its peripheral location with respect to the city center. However, an important news of last year could mark a big change; the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport gave the go-ahead to a funding of over 213 million euros for the new tramway of Rome “Termini – Giardinetti – Tor Vergata”. These are resources for rapid mass transport that will allow the procedure for the transformation of the railway line “Roma – Pantano” into a tramway line and the transfer of ownership from the Lazio Region to the City of Rome.
Uninformazione is committed to:
In addition, as part of the improvement of the public road system and related services we will propose:
University scientific research represents an innovative driver for the development and growth of society. Our University aims to increase cooperation and interconnection with companies by encouraging the transfer of research results to industry and the territory (so-called technology transfer).
To enhance the value of research results we propose the following points.
In addition to the proposals listed above, here are some additional points not included in the areas of reference.
