supervising members' interest

The JAMKO student union supervises the interests of its members at Jyväskylä University of Applied Sciences in accordance with the law.

We influence JAMK’s institutions and working groups, we cooperate with the city of Jyväskylä in matters related to students and we bring the voice of students to be heard in municipal decision-making. Monitoring the rights of students and supporting them in situations of conflict is an integral part of the work of the student union. Big things are easier to solve through the student union. JAMKO’s Board and the advisors support e.g. in the following matters.

  • Questions about the quality of education and the organization of teaching.
  • Conflict situations e.g. with teachers.
  • Questions about the accessibility and accessibility of the university.
  • Disadvantages related to equality and non-discrimination.
  • Taking diversity into account and developing it at JAMK.

As a member, you can influence how work is done and what kind of things the student body promotes.
