Fachschaft (Students)

Formally speaking, the “Fachschaft Computerlinguistik” is all of you: The term “Fachschaft eines Faches” (students of a subject) just means all the people who study that subject. This means you don’t have to do anything to become a part of the Fachschaft and you also can’t do anything against it: As soon and as long you’re studying Computational Linguistics here, you are part of the Fachschaft.

“Aktive Fachschaft” (active students)

Normally, however, the term is used differently: Most people who talk about the “Fachschaft” in everyday life do not mean all computational linguistics students, but only those who are particularly committed to their fellow students. This sub-group of the formal student council could be called the “aktive Fachschaft” (active students) to differentiate it. The active student council is not a formally defined term, nor are its members written down anywhere – they are simply the people who have decided to donate some of their time for all computational linguistics students.

How to get involved?

If you would like to get involved (and thus become an “active student”), drop by one of our weekly general assemblies to find out what we are doing. Maybe there’s already a topic that you’re enthusiastic about and would like to help out with. Otherwise, it’s also perfectly fine to just listen. If you would then like to take on a task, you can contact us at any time.

Otherwise, you can also contact us at any time via mail, heiCHAT or in the pool. Or you can speak to someone in person. We look forward to hearing from you 🙂
