PhD Committee & University Elections

New student representative on AU Board

The student representatives on the AU Board will again be Sune Koch Rønnow from Studenterrådets Spidskandidater and Line Dam Westengaard – also from Studenterrådets Spidskandidater. Line will be replacing Lieve Vermeulen and will take up office on 1 February 2018.

Impressive two per cent increase in turnout

The overall turnout for this year’s election was 20.03 per cent.  This represents an increase of almost two per cent compared to the election in 2014 (turnout: 18.07) in which it was also possible for students as well as members of academic staff to vote. This increase is largely attributable to student commitment and support as well as university-wide communication initiatives throughout the election process. In total, there were 23 contested elections – i.e. elections in which it was possible to vote for different candidates – 121 uncontested elections and 25 cancelled elections.
