As a student at the University of Stavanger (UiS) you are automatically a member of the student organization StOr. We work to safeguard the student's academic, democratic and social needs and rights by addressing the student case and facilitating student participation in all arenas at UiS. StOr is facilitator for UiS students, through the election of elected representatives to the boards, councils and committees. StOr also works closely with the University Management and the University Board, the Student Union (SiS), the municipality, the county council, the Ministry of Education and Research and the Norwegian Student Organization (NSO).
StOr is also the umbrella organization for the University's student organizations and associations. This means that StOr is responsible for facilitating an active student environment that will promote student welfare, social and cultural interests as well as academic needs. Today, there are nearly 60 student organizations at UiS, and we encourage you to start more. Check out this page for more info.
The work committee at StOr consists of three full-time honored positions elected by the student parliament at UiS. We have a leader and two deputy leaders with in-depth roles, education and learning environment. The Student Parliament selects working committees at the last parliamentary session in the spring semester and at the same time decides what we will work on in the coming year through a work program. We also have an organizational consultant who is permanently employed and works with administrative tasks.
