The SSA aims to be the liaison between the HG, the Hanze UAS organisations and external parties with the aim of supporting each other and increasing their cooperation.
In order to connect the Hanze UAS organisations, the SSA organises various social activities. The SSA does this in order to strengthen the bonds between them. In addition to social activities, the SSA also organises four General Meetings Organisations (AVO). The purpose of an AVO is to bring together the Hanze UAS organisations so that they can get to know each other and help each other. In addition, the progress of the SSA is discussed and there is an opportunity to discuss problem issues from the organisations.
In addition to linking the Hanze UAS organisations, the SSA also makes use of a large external network, including the National Platform. The National Platform is a platform set up by the SSA and consists of umbrella organisations from throughout the Netherlands. The umbrella organisations can advise each other on issues within the National Platform. Having a large network is advantageous for all organisations.
By providing information in English, the international directors become more involved in the aforementioned network. In addition, the SSA organises activities in English when there is a demand for it, in order to promote inclusiveness.
