The elections are approaching and we invited representatives of students and staff to the studio to tell their experiences. At the event, we will meet Lecturer Jukka Hiltunen from the Board of Directors and Strategy Officer Sirpa Aalto and Student Miriam Putula from the University Collegium. The discussion is hosted by Student Emma Hulkkonen. The language of the discussion is Finnish and you can follow the English simultaneous interpretation on Zoom (see the instructions below).

The Administration Elections for staff and the Student Council Elections for students will be held in autumn 2021. With the Administrative Elections, staff and professors elect their representatives to the University Board of Directors, the University Collegium and the Faculty Boards. The student representatives for University administration are elected by the Student Council and the Board of OYY. The two student representatives to the University Board and the student representatives to the University Collegium are elected by the Student Council, other student representatives are elected by the Board of OYY.

The event is organised by the University of Oulu and the Student Union of the University of Oulu.
