The Board of Learners (BoL) is the central representative body for students, doctoral students, and alumni of ENGAGE.EU. It advises the decision-making committees on teaching issues, in particular. Currently, the board has 14 members, two of each partner university.
Sandro Mochan, born in 2000, is currently pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration at the University of Mannheim.
He is the chairman of the Board of Learners and has been a member since the end of 2020. In addition, he sits on the Governing Board of ENGAGE.EU.
Sandro campaigns for the education and participation of adolescents and young adults in a number of ways. For example, he founded a club, supported the creation of several youth initiatives and organizations in the fields of democracy and education and has been a member of various (public) bodies.
Sydney Greiner, born in 2001, has been enrolled in the University of Mannheim’s program in Economics since 2020. Sydney has been involved in different associations campaigning on education, such as the German pupils’ academy (Schülerakademie) and the Economics’ departmental student committee.
She also gained plenty of experience through jobs and voluntary commitments in the health sector and in business consulting.
Since the summer of 2022, she has been a member of the Board of Learners. She is looking forward to contributing to shaping and connecting European universities, and to implementing her ideas for a united Europe.
We are planning to create “local chapters” in every ENGAGE.EU city, also in Mannheim. We will keep you updated on the latest developments.
We want to create ENGAGE.EU ambassador positions by means of which students can get involved in the alliance in a flexible way. Special events such as an ENGAGE.EU student conference and competitions are also envisaged. More information will be provided as of the fall semester 2023.
