Scientific personnel are also choosing representatives for their PhD committees. New Boards of Study at the faculties of SCIENCE and HEALTH, as well as for Biotech Research and Innovation Center ( BRIC)

The contested elections

While there is a battle for the position of representative for the University Board, most other elections for the councils and study boards are decided by “peace election”.

That means that the amount of people nominated for the available positions make up the exact number of people that can be elected. Which is why voting does not take place, those vying for the positions are automatically given a seat.

There are elections being contested at the following councils and committees.

The Academic Council at Faculty of Law
The Academic Council at Faculty of Social Sciences
The Saxo Institute, Department of Prehistoric Archaeology
The Study Board for the Bachelor in law at Faculty of Law
The Study Board for the Master in law at Faculty of Law
The Study Board for Global development
The Study Board for Department of Political Science

The Election ends Friday, 25 November at 15:00 hours. Did we mention that you Vote for the University Elections here
