In addition to the board and the council, the delegates in the commissions and bodies are central to the work in the VSUZH. The students engaged in these work on specific topics or subject areas and report to the council and board on their work. This in turn is used as the basis for decisions in the council and board.


The subjects of the commission's work are as diverse as life at the university itself. Areas that affect university learning and life and are discussed in terms of university policy. For example, the Sustainability Commission works to ensure that not only the VSUZH, but the entire UZH adapts and implements its strategies for the sake of the environment. Another example would be the service commission, which regularly organizes events such as speed dating, sports days or the powder festival. We also have a seat on the university commissions and can work directly with UZH. The work in the various committees is crucial for the development of student life and is at the heart of student engagement.
