No place in Denmark is more than 50 km from the sea. Student Forum UCN is a council for students at UCN and was formed on requests for more student involvement and influence on UCN. We are seeing the organization becoming more uniform, and this means that many decisions have an impact across study programs and campuses, which is why we, the students, should have a common voice within the organization. That is why Student Forum UCN will champion the students' interests by exercising its influence on decision-making processes in UCN's governing bodies and act as the link between the students and the Rectorate.
