In the University Elections of 2021, the personnel of the University of Turku elect their representatives to a number of decision-making bodies, most notably the University Board (hallitus) and the University Collegiate Council (kollegio).

TURTLE represents approximately one half of the teaching and research staff of the University of Turku. Our aim is to continue having a strong presence in the university governance and in this way serve our members’ interests.

Electronic voting takes place 9–11 November 2021.

University Board

The Board is the highest decision-making body of the university.

The University Board has 10 members. Four of them come from outside the university, six members represent the three groups of the university community: professors, students and the so-called middle group consisting of those personnel groups that are neither students nor professors (such as lecturers, doctoral researchers and administrative personnel). TURTLE has nominated candidates in the professor category as well as the middle group category.

University Collegiate Council

The University Collegiate Council is one of the central governing bodies of the university. It is also an important discussion venue between the grass-root level of the university community and the management of the university. The Collegiate Council also nominates a part of the Board members (the so-called external members).

The Collegiate Council has 30 members (and their personal deputies). 10 members represent professors, 10 represent students and 10 represent the middle group.

TURTLE has nominated a list of candidates in the middle group category.
