Have an influence and participate

Giving feedback and reporting the flaws of one’s own study field gives every student a chance to make things better for everyone. Voting at the council of representatives elections, being a representative and participating in working groups give an individual the chance to have an influence, and to accumulate valuable experience. Additionally, everyone interested in trusteeship is welcome to be a part of the student union’s trusteeship team, which handles contemporary issues in student trusteeship both at the instutional and the national level.

Everyone is encouraged to participate in JAMKO’s trusteeship functions!


Grumble Weeks

One for all and all for one!

JAMKO’s feedback collection concept Grumble Weeks is an important development tool for education, the students’ common issues, JAMKO and the JAMK UAS. At the Grumble Weeks, organized once a year, students have a chance to give feedback related to studies, instruction, guidance and the functions of the student union. The Grumble Weeks last for two weeks and are a part of the JAMK UAS’s quality assurance system. They were organized for the first time in Spring 2010.

Student representation in working groups

Making the student voice heard is an important part of JAMKO’s trusteeship. The students have a stable presence in the administrative organs and working groups of the JAMK University of Applied Sciences. Additionally, students have an influence in the board and the delegation of Keski-Suomen opiskelija-asuntosäätiö KOAS. Participating in a working group gives a student valuable experience and enhances the well-being, decision making capabilities and rights of the student body. New representatives to the working groups are chosen annually, when an old term ends and a new begins. An individual can be chosen as a member of a working group even if s/he does not act actively in a study field student association or the JAMKO council of representatives.

The KOAS board

The foundation is backed by the city of Jyväskylä, the Student Union of the University of Jyväskylä (JYY), the The Student Union of JAMK University of Applied Sciences and some smaller student unions. The foundation is governed by a 24-member delegation which meets twice a year, and a board which has 9 members.

Trusteeship team

The trusteeship team is a casual working group of JAMKO, which welcomes all JAMK students interested in trusteeship. In the trusteeship team, the student representatives to JAMK working groups, the trusteeship correspondents of study field student associations and the student union meet. In the meetings contemporary issues related to student trusteeship are handled, and information about trusteeship-related issues at JAMK is conveyed. The team facilitates co-operation between its members, shares and develops good practices and conducts trusteeship through mechanisms such as the Grumble Weeks. The team is led and called together by the social policy correspondent and the educational policy correspondent of the student union.

Information on meetings of the trusteeship team can be found on the event calendar, the Trusteeship Newsletter Ajankohtainen JAMKOnen and from the Weekly Overview.

JAMKO's Snail Card

If a teacher has not graded her/his course within a month (four weeks) from the expiration date of the course, the teacher can be “turned in” to the student union. JAMKO sends the teacher in question a “Snail Card” via e-mail. When turning in a teacher, please specify which study module or course you took and what was its expiration date.

The purpose of the card is to remind the teachers in a tongue-in-cheek way to give the grades as is dictated in the degree regulations, that is, within four weeks of the expiration of the study module.

Remember to check that you have completed and returned all assignments and examinations before “turning in” a teacher!


Trusteeship Newsletter Ajankohtainen JAMKOnen

Ajankohtainen JAMKOnen is a trusteeship newsletter which introduces what is going on in JAMKO’s trusteeship sector and brings trusteeship work closer to students. By following Ajankohtainen JAMKOnen, you can stay up to date on what is happening in trusteeship, both locally and nationally.

Ajankohtainen JAMKOnen is sent to the council of representatives, study field student associations and the student union board. Additionally, the newsletter is published on Facebook and at the student union website.
