SFedU Students’ Union

At Southern Federal University, it is currently one of the priorities to promote student self-government. SFedU administration holds the view that student self-government makes it easier to solve certain university problems, as well as helps students to become more responsible, sensible, independent-minded and socially aware.

Student self-government is effected through SFedU Students’ Union. It is made up of  members of smaller students’ unions, such as the faculties’, institutes’ and campuses’ unions. SFedU Students’ Union is capable of affecting the university’s policy due to its representation in the Academic Council. It is the Union’s current aim to increase such representation.

SFedU Students’ Union is actively involved in the coordination of sporting and cultural events. It also deals with students’ social problems and assists academically excellent students in obtaining special scholarships and grants.

Yakov Aslanov, a student of the Faculty of Regional Studies has been Chairman of SFedU Student Union since February 2012.
