Department Representatives are elected at the general assembly for each respective department (some of which arrange for electronic elections). These are normally held once each semester. Department Representatives represent students in various forums around the department, and have a permanent seat in the Student Council and attend Student Council meetings. They are responsible for staying informed about current issues on the department’s agenda that might affect or interest students, as well as keeping the department administration informed about the students’ issues and stance on current events. The position as department representative is remunerated. Each department is to keep up-to-date information about who currently serves as Department Representative available online. All representatives have designated office hours at the Student Councils’ office in ‘Gata’ once a week (meaning the office is manned daily from 8am-4pm). Students are welcome to stop by the office w/ concerns or questions, or simply to have a chat and a cup of coffee. All representatives are given thorough training, and no previous experience is required except devotion!
As Programme Reperesentative (PTV), you are subordinate to Department Representatives in the Student Democracy, and work closely with them. PTV is a less demanding position than the other two, yet it is also very important. Programme Representatives have a permanent seat to represent their students in their respective Programme Councils, which involves regular contact with the head of your programme. Reference groups are an important resource to ensure NTNU receives feedback from students, and part of the position as Programme Representative invovles ensuring that Reference Group Reports are delivered from all subjects.
