November was an important month for LYY: many important documents, like LYY’s Strategy, were prepared and released.
Information from the University
A new board for the University of Lapland for the term of office from 1 January 2021 to 31 December 2023 has been elected. During November, the University mapped out remote and hybrid work experiences and encouraged university students to interact with each other and university personnel remotely. In December, communality will be especially evident when we celebrate the year’s end with Kuusijuhla 2.0 live show on Wednesday, December 16, starting at 1 p.m. – remotely of course. You can also send your own video greeting to the party by 8.12. In addition to the Christmas party, the rector’s mornign coffee will also be on held on 11 December 2020 at 8.30 am!
Protection of Interests
LYY recently commented on the inadequacies recently noticed in student culture. Through its own activities, LYY has sought to reduce harassment and bullying. Especially when the LYY Interaction and Communality survey shows that students experience bullying from many different sources and worryingly often. We hope that the student will have a low threshold to contact, for example, LYY’s harassment contact persons. We’ve also gotten tips on what we could do even better. Comments from the members are valuable feedback that will be taken into account in the development of operations.
Wishing you a better and safer next year and a Merry Christmas!
The Executive Board
We can’t say that this year has been easy. We like challenges and definitely got some this year. The Executive Board 2020 thanks everyone for the past year and wishes everyone a peaceful holiday season and a hopeful new year!
