All functions of the Student Union of JAMK University of Applied Sciences are based on the reason the student union exists in the first place – looking after the interests of the student body. Trusteeship, which is what this interest-watching is called, is advocacy work which aims to improve and maintain the students’ standing, education and well-being in the JAMK UAS and in society. The student union trusteeship is based on the JAMK degree regulations, ethical principles and the university of applied sciences law.
JAMKO trusteeship participates in the administrative organs and working groups of the JAMK UAS to ensure that the student’s voice is heard in the decision-making of different units and administrative fields. Additionally, the student union trusteeship supervises the quality of instruction from a student’s point of view. Trusteeship is done through various working groups, by taking a stand and by working together with different actors that have an influence on the position of students. JAMKO also acts to support and counsel its students.
JAMKO trusteeship also looks after the interests of exchange students and international degree students of the JAMK UAS by participating in various international working groups of the university. The student union also makes sure that services and communications are provided in English as well.
The student union informs the student body about current issues in trusteeship under the ‘News’ heading on the front page of its website, in the trusteeship newsletter Ajankohtainen JAMKOnen, and in social media. If you have questions about trusteeship, or you would like to provide some feedback, do not hesitate to contact us!
