We in the Student Organization at the University of Stavanger (StOr) work for all students at UiS. As a student at UiS, you are automatically a member. We work to take care of the student's academic, democratic and social needs and rights by speaking out on behalf of the students and facilitating student participation in all arenas at UiS. It is the students who, through the student election, decide what we will work with on behalf of the students at UiS. Our two main tasks are the shop steward system and the engagement environment. The shop steward is the system that organizes the students' participation in UiS. Trade union representatives can be found at all levels at UiS. Our second main task is the engaged environment where we collaborate, coordinate and assist line associations and student organizations with issues concerning students' social and learning environment-related needs.
The Student Parliament
The Student Parliament is the students' main mouthpiece at UiS. Read more about the student parliament and student democracy here
To promote commitment and belonging to UiS, we distribute funds to organizations that want to arrange social activities for students at UiS.
As a student at UiS, you have the opportunity to support student-based international development assistance over the semester fee. For 2020 and spring 2021, this money will go to Stiftelsen Partners Norge.
