On Wednesday, 27 March 2024, Dariusz Wieczorek, Minister of Science and Higher Education will visit the University of Silesia.

We invite you to participate in a meeting of the student and PhD student community of universities in the Silesian Voivodeship with the Minister of Science, Dariusz Wieczorek. The meeting will be held at the Rawa Club at 10.00 (attic of the spinPLACE building, Katowice, ul. Bankowa 5). All people willing to discuss possible changes in the higher education system in Poland based on their current experience of studying in our voivodeship are invited to participate. For organisational reasons, people who want to take part in the meeting are asked to register via the form until 25 March 2024.

Such a direct meeting with the Minister is a good time to present opinions and demands regarding the conditions of studying, which should be heard and addressed with the joint involvement of universities and the Ministry. These include, among others, regulations regarding financial aid and formal education matters, as well as problems resulting from the rising costs of housing, transport and basic services.

We appreciate your requests submitted so far and encourage you to continue submitting them to the following e-mail address: glos.studencki@us.edu.pl. Postulates submitted by 22 March 2024 will be presented to the Minister on 27 March 2024 by representatives of student and PhD student governments of universities in our voivodeship.

So far, nearly 40 demands have been received from the student and PhD student community of the University of Silesia, which were initially discussed during a meeting with the Rector of the University of Silesia on 27 February 2024. Some of them related to matters connected with the functioning of the university, and the rest will be submitted to the Ministry of Science and Higher Education as proposed system solutions. In the coming days we will publish the list of demands along with the initial solutions that can be implemented at the University of Silesia.
