About POLIS

POLIS is the study association for and by students Organization Studies at Tilburg University. POLIS was founded at the 3rd of May 1991 and has grown over 27 years to an organization with over 500 members. By organizing both relaxing and study related activities we try to involve our members with POLIS and the university. These activities are organized by committees. By joining one of these committees you get the perfect opportunity to get some hands-on experience, in the rather theoretic environment the University offers. It’s also a great opportunity to meet students from different years.

Global Management of Social Issues is a new program and a track of the bachelor Organization Studies. This program integrates knowledge from three academic fields in the social sciences: human resource studies, organization studies, and sociology, from a cross-cultural and international comparative perspective. Due to the fact that the bachelor Global Management of Social Issues is a track of the bachelor Organization Studies and these studies are quite similar, both studies belong to Study Association POLIS. From now on, if we mention students Organization Studies we also mean bachelor students Global Management of Social Issues.

What POLIS does

POLIS organizes study related activities like excursions to organizations, a study trip, a congress, workshops and recruitment activities. On the other hand we organize fun activities like parties in our favorite bar: Café de Boekanier. We also have activities like a pub crawl, family day and of course our introduction camp! The introduction camp is the perfect way to start your student career. All first years (bachelor and premasters) are welcome to join us, have a good time, and learn something about study association POLIS and what we can help you with in your future career!

All members of Study association POLIS will be kept up to date about upcoming activities by sending them a newsflash, updates on the website and posts in the facebookgroup. Also every year POLIS makes an almanac, in which you can find photo’s and stories about the past year.
