SUPPORT AND COUNCELLING

At the Nation, we have different support and councelling functions. As a member you are can use them whenever you feel that you need it. We always strive to make sure that everyone feels welcome and safe here at the Nation. Among these functions, we have an elected Chaplain that you can talk to for support. The chaplain is a priest in the Swedish church, but you don't have to be a member of the church, or even religious, to talk to the chaplain. Anything you talk about with the Chaplain will be treated with confidentiality.

The Nation also has an elected ombud for equality work. This person is tasked with making sure that any and all indadequacies at the Nation regarding equality, is attend to. The ombud for equality is also the person to contact in case you notice indadequacies when being at the Nation.

The position of Ombud for equality is currently vacant. If it sounds like a position that you would like to apply for, you can do so by sending and email to val@uplandsnation.se. The post description and the Equality plan for the Nation are available here.

Finally, we also have the Inspector. The role of the Inspector is to make sure that the Nation follows the statutes as well as being a link between the Nation and the university. This includes supporting the Nation's activities and promote our interests. Our current Inspector is Björn Victor, who is a professor in Computing science. He was elected in 2019 and can be reached through inspektor@uplandsnation.se.

The First curator is together with our Ombud for equality, repsonsible for the work with equality issues. Would you also like to be part of the work with safety and equality matters at the Nation? Contact the First curator through 1Q@uplandsnation.se!
