Student Groups

Lead, perform, and transform. Meet the different student groups, associations, chapters, and clubs that the Leadership Center offers you and get onboard!

Promoting students’ participation through the structuring of student groups is a strategy that CELES uses to form high-performance leaders in the civic-political milieu. These student groups are formed to serve different purposes.

The student government is structured as follows:
  • Federation of UDEM Students (FEUDEM)
    Highest student representative body, which is elected by all students from the university level.
  • Student Election Committee
    A student body that regulates the election and accreditation processes of UDEM’s student group structure.
  • Academic Programs’ Student Societies
    Groups who represent students from the different academic programs and carry out activities to promote the enrichment of educational experience through contact with experts in their field of knowledge and through the sharing of experiences and the integration of their peers as a group.
  • Student Senate
    The Student Senate is a body comprised of at least one representative from each academic program. This representative is elected by direct ballot and is responsible for identifying student concerns and for bringing forward improvement proposals which allow our institution to offer excellent academic and extra-academic holistic education.

We also have student groups which are formed for different objectives:
  • Student Chapters of National and/or International Bodies
    They are formed with the purpose of liaising students with a renowned professional body or association in their professional milieu.
  • Specific Associations
    They aim to carry out activities that promote specific academic and extra-academic interests, thus generating forums that provide a space for the different interests and concerns of the students (ecology, leadership, art, culture, etc.)
  • Regional Associations
    These are formed by out-of-town and/or foreign students who try to facilitate students’ process to integrate to university life, providing them with a point of reference in their new environment.

Each one of these groups experiences a formative process in consonance with its purpose.

There is also a more flexible type of group called Clubes Estudiantiles (Student Clubs) in which students find an alternative to promote some type of activity among their fellow students without forming an official student group but with the same prerogatives to use institutional areas.
