The University of Tartu student body is looking for a new student union board this spring due to the end of the two-year term of the current board. All new board member candidates – students from three different faculties of the university – have now been revealed. The debate of board member candidates will take place on Tuesday, 30 May, at 18:15 in Tiksula (Ülikooli 17), and the new board will be elected on Thursday, 1 June, at 18:15 at the Student Parliament meeting.
The debate of board member candidates lasts up to 1.5 hours, and everyone interested is invited to listen. At the debate, you can ask questions on the spot and also send your questions to candidates in advance through the Slido environment. The candidates' conversation will also be translated into English, which anyone interested can listen to via the Zoom live broadcast. The election of the student union board will take place on Thursday, 1 June, at the Student Parliament meeting in the university's main building. Only UTSU Parliament members are entitled to vote during the election, but the election meeting is open to all interested parties.
The student union board consists of the president and two vice presidents, whose term of office lasts two years, i.e., from 1 July 2023 to 30 June 2025 (the current board's term lasts until 30 June 2023).
This year, three people submitted their candidacy to the board, all studying in different faculties of the University of Tartu. Two of them applied for the position of vice president, and one person applied for the position of president.
