NSU Board

The Board of the Nordic Summer University is its executive body. It consists of five members, at least four of which must be representatives from different Nordic or Baltic countries. The chair and board members are elected by participants of NSU during the General Assembly organised at the Summer Session each year. Elected board members are to serve for one calendar year at a time. Areas of responsibility are divided among the members. These include: economy, external funding, publication activities and archive, study program, communication and PR, external relations, and management of internal affairs. Meetings take place in person a minimum of four times a year, besides which Skype meetings are organised based on need.

To assist the General Assembly in electing the new members of the Board of the Nordic Summer University, a Nomination Committee is chosen who will talk with previous members and potential candidates in order to select a group of people who are willing and able to support the Nordic Summer University as a board member.

More information can also be found in the statutes of the Nordic Summer University.

All positions at the Nordic Summer University, including the board members, are voluntary positions. NSU only covers the expenses made, based on actual costs.

Protocols from board meetings are made public and can be found on this website. Archive >>
