What is the Student Council?

The Student Council consists of 37 regular members and their vice members. The Student Council meets about 7 times a year. It decides annually, among other things, on OYY’s action plan, budget and annually elects OYY’s executive board. The Student Council makes all major financial and political decisions concerning the Student Union. These decisions have been recorded in the policy paper, strategy and contingency plan, which are updated when necessary. In addition, the Student Council makes a decision on the hiring of the secretary general and the editor-in-chief of the Oulu Student magazine.
