Join us to hear about the Student Union Council Elections 2019

News | 24.9.2019

The new Student Union Council will start its two-year term in January 2020. The Council is the highest decision-making authority in the Student Union. It decides on what the Student Union will do in each of the two years while in office. It uses this power by determining how much money will be used and for what purposes.

In other words, the Student Union Council approves the annual budget and decides what the Student Union will focus on during the council's term. During the year, the Student Union Council usually convenes once a month (excluding summer months).

Almost ten percent of the students at the University of Turku are international students, but international students are under-represented in the Council of the Student Union. Let's change that!

In this event we will share information about the Council elections that will be happening in the beginning of November. This event is for anyone who is even mildly interested in student democracy and student involvement. We will share information on how to vote and how to run as a candidate. We will also be presenting our Council groups and what kind of topics are on their agenda. The event will be held in English.

WHAT: Council election info for all students (in English)
WHEN: 1 October at 17:30-19:00
WHERE: TYY Sauna, Rehtorinpellonkatu 4a, next to Proffan kellari
WHY: TYY Council is the highest decision-making body of the Student Union, and we want your voice to be heard!

The space is accessible. If you have some questions that you want to ask in advance, please contact our Specialist for International Affairs Satu
