The backbone of this community is the commitment of all its members to be respectful and caring towards each other. Although we all agree to these values, practicing them is not always easy.That is why we decided to institutionalise our values of support and respect more firmly and created the position of Safe Persons. These safe persons are Anastasia and Joris, two third year philosophy students and active members of Icarus. These are the people to whom you can go to solve quarrels and disagreements, and that help you when you don’t feel respected or even unsafe within the association. They are there to ensure Icarus stays a safe and welcoming space for all members. To contact the safe persons, mail them at firstname.lastname@example.org or text or call them. Feel free to also approach them at Icarus events or in the SR!
Code of Conduct
The Code of Conduct will broadly outline what Icarus considers to be unacceptable behavior and the values we hold regarding it, appropriate punishment and its procedures when a breach in the Code of Conduct has taken place, the functioning and powers of the Safe Persons and the Board in enacting the Code of Conduct.

Icarus owes a lot to our student-led committees besides the board. The committees that make up Icarus are the activity-committee (AcCie), the borrel-committee (BaCo), the travel-committee (ReisCi), the social-committee (SoCo), and finally the humanities-committee (the Gecco). All these people help create the Icarus you know, with lots of fun activities, borrels, philosophical discussions and great people and friendships!
- SoCo: Hi! We are the SoCo, the ‘social-committee’ of Icarus. We edit, write for and publish our newsletter, Hubris, and run our social media. The SoCo is made up of Robert, Anouk, Vik and Jasmine. If you would like to contribute towards Hubris or have any ideas or pictures for social media let us know by mailing: firstname.lastname@example.org.
- AcCie: Hi! We are the light shining bright, the AcCie, the ‘Activities-committee’ of Icarus. Our duty compels us to organize a variety of events: movie nights, book clubs, lectures, beer pong and many others.
- ReisCie: Hi! We are the ReisCie, the travel-committee of Icarus. We organize fun and educational trips for the association. This year we will be going to the beautiful Rome and discover all its great places. We will also visit cities in the Netherlands and do tours there, pub crawls and scavenger hunts. We are excited to travel with you!
