You want to be a good university citizen. And you want to exercise your democratic right to vote. Here is a guide to the University of Copenhagen's elections.
Professor Eske Willerslev is moving to Cambridge, with 80 per cent of his employment at the British university from now on. He steps down from the University of Copenhagen’s governing board.
The Student Council’s top candidate, Olivia Boesen, wants to ensure that the board dedicates resources to help students deal with stress and loneliness.
»It feels like the decision-makers don’t know what they’re doing,« says Eske Willerslev and Jesper Grodal. They are running for seats on the board of The University of Copenhagen for more co-determination.
Laboratory technician Dorte Brix wants to make sure that the administrative personnel are not made invisible at the university: »I think a lot of people are walking around feeling bad.«
Professor of physiology, Flemming Dela, calls for a board that is more visible in the public conversation, less concerned with politics, and more concerned with gaining the trust of researchers and faculty members.
Associate Professor Ravinder Kaur calls for more democracy at University of Copenhagen and is looking to take a stand against short-term contracts and what she calls the equality paradox.
The University of Copenhagen was more complicated and far more time-consuming to manage than the Chairman of the Board Mads Krogsgaard Thomsen had ever imagined. It is the arm wrestling with the politicians that has been the most demanding, he says in this retrospective.
All faculties have received more applications than last year, but there are still more available spots left in individual programmes than was the case last year. Psychology remains the degree programme with the highest grade point average.
