Trust Person

As a student you can reach out to one of our trust persons, Rosalie and Lars, who you can go to for (personal) issues that may hinder a positive experience at STAR. These issues may range from (mental) illnesses to broader issues within STAR that make you feel uncomfortable or unsafe. Your chairman is your first contact person for these issues. However, issues that you do not want to discuss with your chairman, can be shared with me. Everything we discuss is confidential and will not be shared with anyone. Any further actions will only be taken with your explicit consent.

Trust Person - Rosalie Duijndam

Dear student,

My name is Rosalie and I am currently the Secretary & HR Manager of the 46th STAR Board. Four years ago, I began my bachelor’s degree in International Business Administration. I was immediately intrigued by the opportunities that STAR presents. That’s why I’ve participated in two committees, and each year has brought fresh challenges and possibilities. However, it could also be overwhelming at the same time. Staying on track with your studies, doing extracurricular activities and keeping up with your social life is a lot to balance. We all face similar struggles, and it’s perfectly normal to feel overwhelmed. Whether you’re feeling the pressure academically, struggling with your extracurricular responsibilities, have something going on in your personal life or simply need someone to talk to, I’m here for you. Everything we discuss will be confidential.

Feel free to reach out to me if you have questions/problems or just want to chat!

Trust Person - Lars Klijn

Dear student,

My name is Lars Klijn and I am the Information Processes Manager of the 46th STAR Board. I finished my bachelor’s in International Business Administration last year and decided to devote a year to STAR. I joined STAR in my first year, becoming part of the IBA Freshmen Weekend committee. Even though I could not attend many events due to COVID-19 restrictions, I still enjoyed my time at STAR and learned a lot, which made me join the IBA Study Trip committee in my second year. I also enjoyed this committee massively, getting to know many people during the year and helping people have a fantastic time during the trip. Last year, I joined the Eurekaweek committee, in which I organised various events and got to know even more people! However, all of the new experiences I gained in Rotterdam while studying have also made me feel overwelmed at times. I found out it is very important to sometimes sit down and talk to some people about things you are struggling with. Everything we talk about is strictly confidential.

You are always welcome to reach out to me if you have anything on your mind!
