This year's teaching award at the University of Copenhagen goes to Associate Professor of Anthropology Cecilie Rubow. She likes to teach in a knit cap pulled down over her ears, and the students love her academic activism. But she does not see herself as a woman with a cause.
The 2023 university elections have been decided. Two members of academic staff (VIP), one technical and administrative staff (TAP) and one student representative have been elected to the UCPH Board. The University Post was there when the results were released.
In the wake of a controversial education reform, Christina Egelund has been praised for her ability to compromise. The University Post met up with a minister who has been described by a political opponent as »the one extenuating circumstance« of the present government. She wished young people had more space to do the kind of zigzagging that make up her own narrative.

It was a wide-ranging philosophical conversation that inspired professors to fight for more collaboration across disciplines. Now they are running as academics for the UCPH Board, where they will work for more prestige for teaching and better funding for small research areas.
They both dream of sustainable communities and a life in the countryside. At UCPH, they will fight for a greener agenda and better well-being – because today, not enough is being done for either of those. Meet the academic list lead candidates from 'A Sustainable University'.
Pia Quist and Jesper Grodal are fighting to retain their seats as academic representatives on the Board of the University: We have fought hard to show that management cannot ignore the employees. We have won several victories, but our work is far from finished, they say.
