The chance to run for the USI Academic Senate is back. From Thursday, 20 April 2023, until 6 May 2023, it will be possible to submit your candidature for the election of the new representatives of this central body of the academic structure, which aims to strengthen the cohesion within the University. Your voice is important to make a difference.
The Senate features all stakeholders of the University, through 10 faculty representatives, 5 representatives of the intermediate academic body, 5 student body representatives, and 5 administrative services staff representatives.
The elections will take place digitally from 9 to 23 May via www.senato.usi.ch, accessible with your eduID.
In USI's development plans, the role of the Academic Senate will grow considerably in significance, becoming an increasingly influential and central body thanks to various delegations that will be conferred on it by the University Council.
Please note that the student representatives elected to the Senate are by right members of the governing body of the Student Corporation. This role represents an opportunity to enrich one's education, growth and participation in academic life.
