The Executive Board of the Student Union of the University of Eastern Finland (ISYY) chose Elina Pitkänen (Master of Arts) as the Student Union’s Coordinator of International Affairs and Administration on 26 June 2020. 26 applications for the position were submitted before the deadline.
Elina starts working in the Student Union’s Kuopio office in early September.
Elina has worked at the Student Union also previously: she worked as a substitute for ISYY’s Coordinator of International Affairs in Joensuu campus 1.11.2019–31.8.2020.
The Coordinator’s tasks include e.g. advocacy and services for international students as well as writing the shortened minutes from the Executive Board meetings and organizing events.
– I'm excited about the new job assignments and moving to Kuopio. Learning all of the new tasks related to administration will of course take up the beginning of the autumn semester, but luckily there are also going to be familiar international tasks and familiar faces, says Elina.
