Political groups of the student council

In the following, the political groups represented in the council introduce themselves.

Page content:

Young Greens Uni Bern (Junge Grüne)

The Young Greens are committed to a university that advances and realises ecologically and socially sustainable solutions.

Specifically, our goals are as follows:

  • Abolition of the duration-of-study penalty
  • Lower tuition fees
  • Fair scholarship system throughout Switzerland
  • Affordable and central housing
  • Ecological projects at the university: e.g. Urban Gardening

The Young Greens are committed to practical sustainability in everyday life at the university. With projects such as urban gardening, the repeated demand for recycling bins in all university buildings or the commitment to an affordable and ecological offer in the canteens, we have been able to achieve the first successful steps in the right direction in recent years. We would like to have an even more ecological offer in the canteens, and further projects such as a clothes swap day or further political initiatives are to be implemented this year.

A second major concern is improving the quality of teaching. For example, the Young Greens are working to ensure that podcasts of courses are offered, that evaluations are made transparent, and that there are better supervision conditions.

And finally, the topic of "equal opportunities" is also an important concern for us. Regardless of parents' finances or gender, regardless of whether they have a migration background or disabilities, everyone should have the same opportunities to study. Freedom of choice in studies must be guaranteed and career opportunities must be open to all.

Are you interested in actively standing up for a sustainable university together with the Young Greens?

Young Green Liberals Uni Bern (Junge Grünliberale)

The jglp Uni Bern stands up for the interests of students in a solution-oriented and consistent way. We reject ideological trench warfare in the outdated left-right scheme. 
Within the SUB, we are committed to constantly improving everyday life at the university. We are always open to students' concerns, ideas and suggestions. We are happy to take your input on board, so get in touch with us!

These topics are particularly close to our hearts: 

Sustainability. The University of Bern should strive to be a role model in the area of environment and sustainability, not least because it already plays a pioneering role in climate research. Therefore, we are committed to a climate-friendly and environmentally friendly orientation of the entire university's everyday life. 

Energy. We are committed to ensuring that the University of Bern makes use of renewable energies wherever possible. The installation of solar cells on the university's non-listed buildings could make electricity consumption more sustainable. We are also calling for solar-powered mobile phone and laptop charging stations on the university campus to make everyday study easier for students. 

Equal opportunities . Regardless of their background, everyone should have the same opportunities to study successfully at the University of Bern. We are fighting to prevent tuition fees from rising any further and, in order to improve the compatibility of family, work and studies, we are calling for the widespread introduction of podcasts in all fields of study. Studying with a disability should continue to be possible without restrictions at the University of Bern.

Teaching. We want high-quality teaching at the University of Bern. Pedagogical training and further education should be compulsory for lecturers. In addition, we demand a transparent evaluation of teaching and, if necessary, intervening measures on the part of the university. The interdisciplinarity of studies should be promoted and students should have the opportunity to continue their education in the field of computer science free of charge. 

Research. The University of Bern should be committed to open and transparent research. Third-party funding must be openly disclosed. Innovative research projects, such as the implementation of a study on the legalisation of cannabis at the Institute of Medicine, should be promoted. In addition, we support the "Better Science" initiative in a politically neutral way, whereby academic work should be characterised by sustainability, diversity and equal opportunities instead of as many publications as possible.

Mobility and exchange. The jglp Uni Bern calls for the reduction of bureaucracy and obstacles for exchange semesters. Active promotion of international relations is also important to us. We have recognised the need for more exchange opportunities in English-speaking countries and want to meet student demand. That is why we are committed to expanding the exchange opportunities that exist today.

Mensa offer. The range of university canteens should become (even) more sustainable. Regional, seasonal, and mostly organic canteen menus at fair prices should be the general standard. The range of vegan dishes should be promoted and allergy-friendly labelling is a must. Minimising food waste and disposable cups are also key concerns for us.

Housing. We advocate for affordable housing close to the university, for example in Viererfeld.

All in all, we would like to see high-quality studies at the University of Bern and are committed to the sensible and continuous modernisation in the interests of the students.

Die Junge Mitte Uni Bern

Die Junge Mitte Uni Bern ist eine vereinsähnliche Gruppierung, welche sich unter dem Motto Freiheit, Solidarität und Verantwortung für die Interessen der Studierenden einsetzt. Der politische Diskurs an der Uni soll gefördert werden. Für uns steht der Mensch im Fokus, die Sache im Zentrum und die Freude ist unser Antrieb.

Warum soll uns beigetreten werden?

Den Einstieg in das Studium an der Universität Bern erleichtern:

Der Eintritt ins Studium ist oft nicht ganz leicht. Viele Veränderungen stehen an, ein neues Umfeld von Mitstudierenden erwartet eine*n, eventuell wird der Wohnort gewechselt und auch der Ablauf des Studiums ist zu Beginn etwas kompliziert und herausfordernd. Oft ist der oder die Studierende auf sich allein gestellt. Die Junge Mitte Uni Bern setzt sich für dich ein und möchte Möglichkeiten schaffen, den Studienbeginn zu erleichtern.

Den Zusammenhalt und Kontakt unter Studierenden fördern:

Uns ist es wichtig, den Kontakt und die Konnektivität unter Studierenden zu stärken. Bekanntschaften unter Studierenden sollten sich nicht nur auf einzelne Vorlesungen beschränken, sondern auch fakultäts- und semesterübergreifend gefördert werden. Die Junge Mitte Uni Bern setzt sich deshalb für ein umfassendes und attraktives Vereinsleben an der Universität Bern ein, wodurch sich der Zusammenhalt und der Austausch unter Studierenden auch neben den Vorlesungen gestärkt werden soll.

Bern nicht nur als Studien- und Arbeitsort:

Die Universität und die Stadt Bern soll für die Studierenden nicht nur Studien- und Arbeitsort sein, sondern auch ein Gefühl von Geborgenheit, Vertrautheit und Zugehörigkeit vermitteln. Deshalb wollen wir zum einen eine erleichterte Eingliederung in bernische Vereine unabhängig von der Universität ermöglichen und zum anderen für Studierende die neu nach Bern ziehen, mit organisierten Stadt- und Quartiertouren den Einstieg am neuen Standort erleichtern. Bern sollte nicht nur als Aufenthaltsort zum Studieren & Arbeiten, sondern als neues zu Hause betrachtet werden.

Attraktive Rahmenbedingungen für die Studierenden im Universitätsalltag schaffen:

Wir setzen uns für ein ausgewogenes und preiswertes Verpflegungsangebot an der Universität Bern ein, das aufrechterhalten und erweitert werden soll. Zudem soll das Sportangebot zu fairen Preisen erhalten und auch ausgebaut werden. Letztlich wollen wir erreichen, dass der administrative und organisatorische Aufwand für die Studierenden möglichst klein gehalten wird.

Politischer Diskurs an der Universität Bern fördern:

Die Junge Mitte der Universität Bern setzt sich für die Förderung des politischen Diskurses an der Uni ein. Das Aneignen von Diskussionskenntnissen und das Einsetzen für bestimmte Interessen kann für die weitere Laufbahn eines*r jeden Studierenden von grossem Nutzen sein.

Haben wir Euer Interesse geweckt und wollt Ihr den politischen Alltag an der Universität Bern mit uns gemeinsam mitgestalten? Dann kontaktiert uns doch bitte unter:

Young Liberals Uni Bern (Jungfreisinnige)

The Young Liberals Uni Bern are committed to a progressive university.

1.) for a better balance between studies, work, and private life: We believe that students are responsible for managing their own time. We advocate for students to be able to manage their time themselves and according to their needs. In concrete terms, we, therefore, call for more podcasts and are against compulsory attendance.

2.) for low tuition fees: It is our concern that studying remains financially attractive and affordable, therefore we campaign against unnecessary expenses and for low tuition fees.

3.) for equal rights: It is particularly important to us that all persons, regardless of gender and origin, can take a seat in the student bodies. In particular, we are clearly against quotas. This means that a position should be filled by the most suitable person.

4.) for a more attractive university sport: We are committed to ensuring that university sport and its offerings remain attractive for students.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us at any time.

Social Democratic Forum (Sozialdemokratisches Forum SF)

We are the parliamentary group of the Social Democratic Forum of the University of Bern and we stand up for a sustainable and social university and university policy. 

Sustainable because, for example, we support the climate strike or advocate for fewer flights for employees. 

Social, because we are committed to equality and equal opportunities. We want a university for all: we want a university where everyone can study as long as they want, no matter how much money they have, and we want a university that actively thinks intersectionally. 

We are not active in order to maintain the old patterns of the university, but in order to make a mark and help shape the university and university life.

We demand: 

  • Abolition of tuition fees and study time restrictions
  • More and better scholarships
  • Study schedules that are compatible with paid and voluntary work
  • More accessible studies for all (e.g. in terms of degree, social gender, origin, physical and mental impairment)
  • Equality of all genders and at all levels (leaky pipeline)
  • Expansion of the services offered to students 

The Social Democratic Forum is the oldest political group at the University of Bern. Members of our group are active in various commissions, in the Swiss Student Union VSS, and sometimes in party-political groups. Interested? You can find us on our website on Facebook and Instagram.

Fachschaftsvertretung (FV)

We are the "Fachschaftsvertretung", a party-independent group in the student council, made up of board members of various student’s committees of different majors at the University of Bern. Our goal is to represent the interests of as many student committees and their students as possible.

We do this by informing the student committees about the agenda items relevant to them before each student council meeting and request their feedback. In this way, we are able to actually represent the students' interests in the student council. In addition, we also commit ourselves to inform the student committees after student council meetings regarding past votes or discussions.

Furthermore, we act as knowledge mediators between student committee boards, the student council and the SUB. By doing so we want to promote the communication between different university groups and strengthen the visibility of the student council and the SUB in the long run.

Finally, we would like to emphasize that as student committee representatives we are equally committed to all student committees, regardless of their size. In this way, we ensure that a large number of students, whose needs the student committee boards know particularly well, can easily bring their concerns to the student council.

We are very happy to be represented in the student council with six seats since March 2023!
