Advocacy

Student advocacy is a statutory task of the student union. Advocacy encompasses the overall well-being of students, such as education, nutrition, study facilities and equality. If you need any advice or help, please contact us!

 

Education policy

The education policy generally means the development of matters related to the quality and contents of the education. In the student union, the education policy means that the chosen confidence actors represent students in different education political teams. These teams and task forces work on matters such as degree structures, curricula, guidance processes and instructions, including the Degree Regulation and RPL guidelines. In these teams, the students are able to influence things.

Social policy

The social policy means influencing the matters related to the students’ welfare: the living, eating and the comprehensive well-being of students. In addition, social policy activities include collaborating with student health care services, student counsellors, the student welfare adviser, the school psychologist and the school chaplain to ensure the well-being of all students.

Harassment contact persons

In our university of applied of sciences, there is a zero tolerance in regard to all kinds of harassment. Harassment may involve mental or physical bullying, discrimination, nasty comments or messages, slandering or any act by another person – a student or a staff member – that the person being harassed finds insulting or unpleasant.
