What is the Council of Representatives?

The Council of Representatives is the Student Union’s highest decision-making body consisting of 49 students and their deputies. The Council is elected every two years. The Council decides, among other things, on the following matters:

  • Election of the Student Union’s Board and committees
  • The Student Union’s strategy and other important documents
  • Budget and the size of the membership fee
  • Action Plan that guides the activities of the Student Union
  • The Student Union’s advocacy goals

The Council of Representatives makes decisions on many themes that impact the students’ everyday life. The Council also decides on the focus points of the Student Union’s advocacy, for example how student culture is improved, what are our member services and the Student Union’s values, and things like the Student Union magazine and development cooperation.

The Council meets about once a month during the semesters at the campuses of Tampere University. All TREY’s members have the right to be present in the council meetings.
