On this website you will find the information you need to take part in the elections of staff members to the University Board.
Ensure that you are correctly listed in the electoral register #
This spring NTNU will elect new student and staff members to the University, Faculty and Department Boards for the coming four-year term. After the merger, it is particularly important that all staff members check that they are correctly listed in the electoral register (voter category, Department/Faculty). You should be in the register of voters if you have at least a 50 % position at NTNU. At the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences academic staff with more than a 20 % position may vote in the local elections.
There will not be made corrections in the electoral register after the deadline 8 March.
Propose candidates to the University Board #
The voters are encouraged to propose candidates to the elections. We are looking for candidates of both gender and from all parts of the university.
Candidates must master Norwegian sufficiently to take part in the debates of the Board. They must also have an employment contract covering the election term 1 August 2017– 31 July 2021. The elected term for temporary academic staff is one year (an employment contract until 30 June 2018 suffice).
Proposals must be signed by three members from the same voter category and be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 15 March at 16.00 hours.
Use your right to vote 3 – 6 April #
The University Board elections open Monday 3 April at 08:00 and end Wednesday 6 April at 22:00. You can vote for as many candidates as there are members and deputy members in your voter category:
- Permanent academic staff (3+3)
- Temporary academic staff (1+1)
- Technical-administrative staff (1+1)
The candidates who obtain the most votes will be elected members and deputy members of the Board. Quotation may be necessary to ensure that the requirements for gender balance are satisfied within each voter category.
