Leiden Assessors Council (LAssO)
The Leiden Assessors Council is a consultative body made up of the student members of each faculty board.
Every faculty board has a student member, known as an assessor. The assessor is responsible for the student affairs portfolio and represents the interests of students in decision-making and policy matters within the faculty board. All assessors come together in the Leiden Assessors Council (abbreviated to LAssO in Dutch). They also meet every six weeks with the Vice-Rector Magnificus, the director of Student and Educational Affairs and the senior policy adviser of Strategy and Academic Affairs, in the Student Affairs Consultation Meeting (Studentenzakenberaad).
The LAssO is responsible for the allocation of financial support for student board members and co-participation activities. It also has a subsidy budget for interfaculty initiatives. See funds page for details.
