Student Forum UCN is a council for students at UCN and was formed on requests for more student involvement and influence on UCN. We are seeing the organisation becoming more uniform, and this means that many decisions have an impact across study programmes and campuses, which is why we, the students, should have a common voice within the organisation. That is why Student Forum UCN will champion the students' interests by exercising its influence on decision-making processes in UCN's governing bodies and act as the link between the students and the Rectorate.
Student Forum UCN will also work to increase student involvement on individual campuses, where we want students to participate in councils and committees that are important to us, the students, and ensure more transparency and knowledge about such councils and committees.
UCN's diverse study programmes means that we are also a diverse group of students; however, one day we will all become a significant part of the foundations of our society. This is why it is of the essence to build the best possible framework for our study programmes, and this requires us to join in the discussion on how our study programmes should be designed and what terms and conditions apply to us as students. The one thing that unites us is that we are all students at University College of Northern Denmark, and that is why Student Forum UCN should aim to make everyone feel part of a community that each individual can depend on.
Student Forum UCN also builds on a desire to create a stronger voice for students of the University College in the political debate. This will be achieved through membership of 'Studenterforum UC', a national initiative that will form an organisation to cover all Danish university college students.
Student Forum UCN wants to collaborate with academic and political student organisations belonging to the individual study programmes. Because we acknowledge that these organisations have a greater knowledge and history within the fields of the individual study programmes than we do, we will draw on our relations when it comes to issues that specifically relate to a particular study programme, and we will also direct students to these organisations when needed.
