Hello hello! My name is Emilie and I want your vote for the NTNU board.

The next few years will be crucial for NTNU with the unification of campus, the consequences of Covid-19, and an ever-increasing focus on sustainability. I want to work to ensure that the students’ needs and wishes are taken care of in the future unified campus. Student participation, study environment and psychosocial health should be preserved for many generations of students in the future. I want a university that takes responsibility for the students, both academically and in everyday life. Student health must be taken seriously, and NTNU, with the board at the forefront, must to a greater extent make itself responsible and safeguard students’ health and study quality.

We are also in a time where several of our bachelor students have never set foot in a physical lecture hall, nor met their fellow students or lecturers due to corona and digital teaching. Here, NTNU must take greater responsibility for ensuring the best possible transition to the good study routine on campus. Moreover, in line with the climate crisis, NTNU must also adapt, and take greater ownership of the UN’s sustainable development goals – both in teaching but also in ordinary business.

I think I am a good candidate for the NTNU board. I have previous management and board work experience, among other after several years with heavier positions in NTNUI, as social and sponsor responsible in the line association, through experiences as part of input groups for the campus project, and the establishment of the sponsor committee at dragvoll. I have been strongly involved in student politics with positions as a faculty student trustee at the Faculty of Humanities, program student trustee for European studies, as a member of the Student Parliament and a member of the Welfare Parliament. Over five years, I have built up a knowledge and understanding of the role and responsibility students, staff and other actors should have to ensure and improve the everyday life of the individual student. Furthermore, this has given me a joy and strong interest in how the study life of the individual student can be improved, something I hope to take with me further as a student elected to the NTNU board.

If you have any questions or suggestions, just get in touch, I look forward to hearing from you!

Happy election!
