Chair - Elise Benard

Hello everybody! My name is Elise, I am currently 20 years old and I am from the East part of the Netherlands. I am a second year Global Responsibility and Leadership student and will be the Chair of Nobis Cura Futuri for the next year. My motivation for applying mostly comes from my ambitions to develop as a leader, as well as grow as a person. I think that this is a great opportunity for me to learn and am therefore very much open to hearing your feedback, ideas and suggestions. As Chair, it is my responsibility to make sure that things run smoothly within the association as well as upkeep its contact with the university and its bodies. My goal for this year is to make sure that this association functions as well as it could, as well as ensure that we keep on developing and growing. When I am not running around working for NCF or following classes, I like spending time with friends, have some nice food and I am always up for a good conversation.

Feel free to send me an email at or just talk to me at uni!

Secretary/Vice chair - Leslie Knigge

Hey hey, I’m Leslie! I’m 20 years old and was born and raised in the beautiful city of Hamburg, Germany. Just like the others, I am currently in the 2nd year of BSc Global Responsibility & Leadership, following a major in Responsible Governance. For the upcoming year, I will be Nobis Cura Futuri’s Secretary and Vice Chair which means that I am in charge of the non-financial administrative tasks and organisation within our association. You will receive all the emails from me about your membership, events and the google calendar, but I’m also responsible for content on the website and keeping the organisation within the Board running smoothly. Next to that, I am a very approachable person that enjoys cooking, listening and making music and just spending quality time with my friends and family:)

Feel free to reach out to me via email ( with any questions/concerns you may have or whenever you see me on Campus!

treasurer - Finn Jetses

Hey there! My name is Finn. Having made my way from the stormy, rainy and flat North of Germany to the stormy, rainy and flat yet lovely Leeuwarden, I am currently a second-year student of Global Responsibility & Leadership here at Campus Fryslân. For the upcoming academic year 2022/23, it will be my honour to serve as Nobis Cura Futuri’s Treasurer. By virtue of my position, I will be responsible for everything financially related; budgeting, event proposals and re-imbursement processes. Besides the regular day-to-day business, I will be working on NCF’s eligibility for CUOS funding, trying to ensure the long-term financial stability of our study association. I want transparency to be my work’s primary characteristic, as I believe in the efficiency of bottom-up dynamics and member dialogue.

If you ever have any questions, input or comments, feel free to reach out (! Personally, I cannot wait for a wonderful NCF year 2022/23: I’ll see you there!

internal affairs - Lisa Thomas

Hello hello, I am Lisa, 20 years old, born in California, raised in Germany. It is my second year at Campus Fryslan, studying Global Responsibility and Leadership, following the humanities track. This year, I have the pleasure of being NCF’s internal affairs officer. I am here to check and approve the event proposals, new committees and policies. I am super excited about my position, as I enjoy hearing about all of the lovely ideas that you guys have. Additionally, as ~internal~ affairs officer, I also serve to mediate conflicts and concerns that might (hopefully not) arise. I am an open ear to anyone, as well as a communication pathway to the NCF board, so if there are any concerns or ideas on how to improve NCF as a whole, don’t hesitate to reach out to me. You can do this at or catch me running around in De Beurs (which I will do a lot).
Next to NCF, everything water and nature related will excite me, as well as cooking and art. Cheers to a good year, and I hope I can make all of your visions come to life:)

external affairs - Judith Meurs

Hi everyone! I’m Judith, a 19 year old student from Rotterdam. I am now in my second year of the bachelor Global Responsibility and Leadership. I was motivated to apply for the external affairs function because I discovered that I like contacting outside organisations to organise events for the community. This is also what my function is about; I will mostly be contacting (potential) partners to create benefits for NCF, such as sponsorships, discounts and amazing events.
I am constantly looking for new potential partners, but I believe that the best NCF network can only be built in cooperation with our members. So if you have any ideas about organisations, companies or people I should contact, or if you already have the contacts somewhere, let me know!

You can always contact me for ideas or questions on See you on Campus:)
