The Nordic Summer University is democratic, transparent and self-organized
The highest governing body of NSU is the General Assembly, which gathers at the annual Summer Session. The General Assembly elects the Board, decides upon the Study Program and budget and it consists of representatives elected from each Study Circle and the different regional meetings. All participants, from newcomers to experienced members, can have their say and thus help to shape the development of the organisation.
The Board is the executive body of NSU, working throughout the year to provide organizational framework and support for the Study Circles.
The Study Circle coordinators are responsible for arranging symposia and communicating throughout the year with the Study Circle participants.
In addition to these main bodies, there are also committees that attend to more specialized tasks. You can find information about all of NSU’s various organizational elements here:
