How HUMAKO works?

The students are responsible of both the operative work as well as the decision making in HUMAKO. The members of the representative council are elected by the members of HUMAKO and among the council's responsibilities are choosing the board of the Student Union and making the most vital decisions about HUMAKO.

Members of the board have different areas of responsibility - the operative sectors. These sectors are social affairs, educational affairs, tutoring, local divisions, workgroups of Humak, campus trustee, communication, sports and international affairs. Being an active member gives you not only a lot of experience and new contacts, but also credits on your study register!

The central election commission is formed of the chairman, two members and their personally appointed stand-in members. The commission is responsible for the organization of the election for the representative council.

HUMAKO is represented by the local divisions in Humak's campuses. The local divisions collect, process and forward received feedback from the students to the board of HUMAKO. The divisions can also organize events and other activities. 

HUMAKO's office is located in Haaga, Helsinki. The office will help you with anything regarding your membership, student cards, overalls, sport passes, stickers and other matters.
