Committee for Academic Affairs
An amendment to the Student Union's Rules turned Tamy's sections into committees in autumn 2011. Exception proves the rule, however, and Culture Section remains a section. Sections were mainly replaced with corresponding committees, but some new committees were also set up; the Committee for Academic Affairs is one of these. The function of the committees is to act as discussion forums and drafting bodies in the Student Union. Committee members can receive recompense for their work.
The purpose of the Committee for Academic Affairs is to follow and influence both national and local general educational politics, draft and/or comment on items concerning educational politics handled by the Executive Board, arrange briefings and discussions on current academic affairs (e.g. student forums), make motions and take stands on matters in academic affairs and attend to any other duties determined by the Executive Board. The first Committee for Academic Affairs will also formulate and approve Terms of Reference to organize its activities.
The Committee for Academic Affairs operates in Finnish.
