They make a difference 

The various councils, boards and committees discuss important topics. The boards of studies, for example, prepare suggestions for the academic regulations, ensure follow-up on teaching evaluations and approve exam schedules. The agenda for the AU board meetings contains topics such as AU’s budget and strategy as well as general development trends in education policy.

In the three videos, students talk about how they make a difference and make positive changes which benefit their fellow students through their work on the AU board, in the academic councils and on the boards of studies (in Danish).
