Yhe act related to Universities and University Colleges in Norway states that students must have 20% representation in all boards and committees at the University. This gives students a fantastic opportunity to influence their own study program and help form their everyday studies at UiS.
In order for the students at UiS to be able to help shape their everyday study, a communication link is needed between the students and UiS. Student representatives function as this communication link as they promote the various issues and opinions of the student masses.
Student representatives are needed at all levels at the University of Stavanger.
In addition to this, there is the Student Organization at the University of Stavanger (StOr). StOrs purpose is to organize the student democracy, and promote students' academic and social rights. We assist students in all kinds of cases. StOr is also a member of the Norwegian Student Organization, who promotes students' rights and issues at a national level.
The student union representatives at UiS also have their own Facebook page. The site is a virtual meeting place for exchange of experience and contact between student union representatives, and it is an arena for follow-up and information flow for StOr. If you are a student union representative, but not a member of the group, you can find it by clicking the button opposite!
