Join HYY’s Committees!


Would you like to be a part of HYY’s action and advocacy in a concrete manner? Join HYY’s committees!

The committees are starting their new operational period in September and you can easily get on board at the organisation meeting. Organisation meetings are held in Kabinetti at Mechelininkatu 3 D and on Zoom.

Our committees focus on brainstorming and developing activities for our Student Union’s different sectors. This translates to organising events, supporting organisations, conducting advocacy work related to educational policy and developing our University community, for instance. The committees are open to all our members, and you can join their activities at any point during the year.

Organisation meetings:
