Educational and social affairs
Promoting interests of students in Rovaniemi, University of Lapland and in whole Finland is one of the main goals of student union. For example we do this by lobbying important persons in the organisation of the University or by bringing the viewpoint of an university student to the public debate.
In practice this means that we try to make sure that students have acces to affordable housing and good health care, and that the university gives students up-to-date education, so that the students will get employd at jobs that match to their education.
