Committees

Study association Umoja has many committees. These committees organize various activities each year for all the members of Umoja! The committees are occupied by members of our study association. It’s possible to join committees at the beginning of the academic year. Are you interested in fulfilling a position within a committee? Then come to the committee market which will be organized during the first week of the academic year! Active membership won’t cost you any extra money and adds more fun to your time as a member of Umoja and at Radboud University.
