The Social Sciences Student Union has five full-timers. A full-timer is a student who has taken a study break for a year to work to promote the union’s activities. The Social Sciences Student Union’s five full-time employees are: Three presidials, one of whom is responsible for faculty-wide issues, one is responsible for university-wide issues and one is responsible for study social issues. In addition to these, there is also a labor market coordinator and an event coordinator.
The fulltimers for 2020/21 are presented below:
President · Responsible for Student Welfare Matters
I am the President of the student union, and responsible for student welfare matters. This means that I am the student union’s representative in the Equality Group at the Faculty of Social Sciences, and responsible for equality matters internally within the student union. In addition, I am responsible for the student union’s economy, national advocacy in education matters through the Swedish National Union of Students (SFS) and for maintaining contact with the other unions and nations involved in the Studentlund cooperation. As President, I coordinate the work of the fulltimers and am the ceremonial representative of the student union, as well as our media spokesperson.
Vice President · Responsible for General Faculty Matters
I am Vice President responsible for general faculty matters at the Student union. This means that I work with student influence on education matters at a faculty level, for example as a representative in the Faculty Board and the steering group for the Campus Paradis building project. I also coordinate all of our student representatives, and the Representative Assembly, which is the highest decision-making body of the student union. Contact me if you are interested in becoming a student representative, in running for the Representative Assembly, or want to chat about education monitoring within the Faculty of Social Sciences!
