All students are a part of the Student-democracy
What is the Student Democracy?
The purpose of the student democracy is to look after the students interests, and to promote the students' views towards internal and external parties. The Student Democracy is a politically and religiously independent body, and was established on the basis of the Universities and University Colleges Act.
You can read more about Student Democracy's structure here!
The Student Democracy consists of students, for students.
It works to ensure that my, your and
all students' voices are heard. That is why it is important that you help to express your opinion.
This applies to everything that affects you in everyday life as a student, such as a desire for a
better offer of public transport, a class that may be improved, or perhaps you think the reading
hall should have had a kettle.
In order for your voice to be heard, you don't necessarily have to run for office, it can be as simple as voting at the Student Election or at the General Assembly. You can also go together with your class and have your class representative.
The Student Parliament's Student Board (AU) for 22/23 consists of Helene Sylvarnes, Leader Jens Bartnes, Åse Vigdisdatter Nytrø (here in order from left to right).
They are responsible for the day-to-day running of the Student Democracy at NMBU, and represent the NMBU students in a number of councils and committees at the university, and externally.
