Advisory Committee for Introductory Periods (ACI)

The ACI gives advice about student safety during the introductory periods for the student organizations (for example, student associations, study associations, sport organizations, KEI and ESN). The ACI also collects all reports of incidents from within student organizations during the entire year and can provide the board of student organizations with advice on the treatment of incidents if necessary. Student organizations are asked to report all incidents to the ACI. The ACI is an advisory committee that means that the associations remain responsible for the actual safety within the student organizations.
