What ISYY: Staff

If you have visited ISYY’s office in Joensuu, Kuopio or Savonlinna, you have met at least one of our staff members. But did you know that at the moment there are in total 17 of us working at different campuses?

You can always contact the staff members of ISYY, if you have something in your mind or if you long for an answer for a question that concerns e.g. the Student Union, UEF, Sports Services or study aid. If we don’t know the answer, we will figure it out together or guide you forward.
