NTNU Board election 26–28 October 2015 #

Due to the merger, the election period for the students and temporary academic staff was prolonged until the end of 2015. Accordingly, the election period for these groups will be extended so that the candidates elected this autumn will function until the first ordinary Board of the merged NTNU is elected in 2017. Hence, the Board elections for students and temporary academic staff this semester will be for the period 1 January 2016 - 30 June 2017. For information on the student election, see Studenttinget’s election pages.

The election for temporary academic staff opens Monday 26 October 2015 from 08.00 and ends Wednesday 28 October 2015 at 22.00. You can vote for up to two candidates. The candidate who obtains the highest number of votes is elected member of the Board, while the most popular candidate of the opposite gender will become deputy member.

You can read about the candidates here when their candidacy is made public. 

Cast your vote on the web using the electronic election system «Valgweb». Log on with your usual NTNU username and password.

In parallel to the NTNU elections, the University Colleges in Gjøvik, Trondheim and Ålesund will elect two employees and one student who will join the NTNU Board in the merger period.

New representatives for temporary academic staff on the NTNU Board will be elected in October. Similar elections to the Faculty Boards and to the structures for participation and co-determination at the Departments, will take place in November-December. The students will also elect new Board members, see Studenttinget's election pages. Other elections may also take place at Faculties and Departments.
