Doctoral Students’ Section established - the next meeting October 24th

A section for doctoral students in the University of Oulu has been established by the Student Union of the University of Oulu (OYY). The decision was made based on a proposal by a general meeting of doctoral students held on August 29th.

The goal of the section is to provide a platform for doctoral students of different fields to share their views on UniOGS and other matters related to their doctoral studies. The student representatives of UniOGS committees will be actively taking part in the meeting of the section, which will guarantee that the worries and ideas of those attending the meetings will reach the UniOGS decision-making.

“Our goal is to create a strong basis for advocacy of doctoral students. We hope that through the section the doctoral students will have a stronger role in developing UniOGS and the university”, says Teea Palo, who was named as the first chairperson of the new section.

The section had the first meeting on September 26th. The meetings are open for all interested doctoral students – OYY membership is not necessary to take part in the meetings. All of the doctoral students are invited to the meetings. The next meeting will be 24.10.2013 at 16.00 in the OYY.
