Tampere University associations: university regulations must be amended


A host of staff and student associations at Tampere University have submitted an initiative to University Board to amend the university regulations.

The associations have identified five key issues in need of attention: 1) Academic Board must have the right to decide on their Chair, 2) Academic Board must have the right to decide on how the election of University Board is prepared, 3) sharing of duties between Faculty Councils and Deans must be reconsidered, 4) all representative organs must consist of an equal number of professors, other staff and students, and 5) University Board must include staff and student representation. Details on how to plan and implement the changes are to be negotiated once University Board commit themselves to this action.
