Department 1

Tarek Steckbeck


My name is Tarek Steckbeck, I am 24 years old and I am in my 7th semester of Economics at the HWR. As a politically interested and discussion-oriented person, I feel that the representation of the student body at our university is essential. Therefore, I would like to stand up for the interests of my fellow students as I would hope you would do the same for me and act as a link between the university and the students.

Department 3

Leonard Ohl

Hello students of the HWR,

my name is Leonard Ohl. I’m 23 and I’m studying Public Administration in my third semester at the Lichtenberg campus.

I would like to ensure that we work towars university being a place that enables all students to get through their studies well and safely.

It is important to me to continue to make the HWR a place where everyone feels comfortable and no one is left alone. This means that financial hurdles are overcome together. This means that the semester ticket is affordable. And this means you’re looking forward to going to campus every day.

I am always happy to answer any ideas, questions or comments you may have!

Department 5

Oscar Guse

I’m Oscar Guse, 23 years old and I’m currently in my 6th semester of the higher police civil service for Berlin.

Besides my studies, I do a lot of strength and martial arts sports and try to keep myself as physically fit as possible. Beyond my sporting activities, however, I have also noticed how important it is to be involved in university politics. For this reason, I have been a member of the LSK (Commission for Teaching and Studies) for some time and have recently also become the departmental representative of FB 5 at the HWR Berlin.

If you have any questions or suggestions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
