As of September 2022, EFR has appointed two internal confidants. They are here for all EFR members in case they want to share or discuss something in confidence. The confidants have followed a specially tailored training for this role and speak both Dutch or English.Below, you will find their role and responsibilities, but also the authority of a confidant.

  • Firstly, everything you share with one of our confidants is strictly confidential, and the confidant will never share it with anyone else without your explicit permission.
  • Secondly, the confidants offer mainly a listening ear. Further action will only be taken by the confidant if explicit consent was given. 
  • Lastly, the confidant will consider and discuss all possible consequences of possible actions together with you. It is important to note that the confidant is independent. This entails that they are not involved in any investigation. 


Our confidants

Sofie Schokking

I am Sofie Schokking, and this year I will be the Marketing and Wellbeing Officer of the EFR board. As your trust person, I want to assure you that I am here for you.

Whether you need assistance or just someone to talk to, I am just a message away. Everything we discuss is strictly confidential, be it related to EFR matters or personal issues. I understand that navigating through the various support channels at the university can be a maze, and I am here to be the bridge between you and the help you seek.

No concern is too small or too significant. Whether it's a minor issue or a major challenge, I am dedicated to providing a listening ear and support. If you feel the need to talk, don't hesitate to reach out.

Stephan van Eijndhoven

Hi everyone, my name is Stephan and I was the IT Officer and Secretary of the 57th board (2 years ago). After an amazing and challenging board year, I started my master’s degree in Financial Economics. At the moment, I am writing my thesis and enjoying my last months as a student. In my free time I like to have drinks with friends, train for my next marathon or plan my next trip to Latin America. Feel free to reach out if there is anything you would like to discuss!
