On this page, you can find information about the committees operating in the student union.

Administrative Committee

The Administrative Committee is a body that operates under the Council of Representatives. The Administrative Committee consists of one representative of each of the student union’s council groups, and the council nominates one of the representatives as the chair. If a member of the Administrative Committee is prevented, a person authorised by a permanent member from their own council group can operate as the Administrative Committee’s full deputy member.

The Administrative Committee’s duties include processing the matters that emerge in the council and giving statements about them to the council. The committee’s specific tasks are to adequately prepare the policy questions of the council meetings and other arrangements related to the council’s activity, observe the student union’s administration and activity and especially questions related to the regulations and organisation of the student union and put forward motions of the observations for the council.
