Election Program The Conservatives

Students at modern institutions should be empowered to affect their learning environment. The Conservatives believe that the best way to attain this, is to increase our freedom of choice. Our top four priorities this election cycle are:

1. End the food monopoly!

While the Student Welfare Organisation of Oslo and Akershus (SiO) serves expensive and low quality foods and drinks at campus, they don’t even pay VAT or rent on their services. We can’t accept this. It is time to end the food monopoly, and let other food outlets also sell their products on campus.

As students, we are the main consumers, and therefore we should have the right to choose!

The Conservatives want to

  • end the food monopoly on campus
  • make sure no business actor receives preferential treatment

 

2. Make exphil more relevant

Instead of focusing on ancient philosophers, examen philosophicum should be centered on critical thinking and scientific reasoning. 

The Conservatives want to

  • modernize exphil to dive deeper into critical thinking and scientific reasoning
  • make exphil more relevant to your degree

 

3. Give us e-books - now!

A syllabus based on paper are neither cheap or environmentally friendly. By using electronic books, however, the prices should go down, and the publishers will be using less paper.

The Conservatives want

  • a syllabus based on e-books

 

4. Shed light on the Speak Up initiative

Both experts and users have recently been critical of the way sexual harassment cases have been handled in the Speak Up initiative. We want independent experts to - in a comprehensive manner - investigate how the university deals with sexual harassment whistle-blowers.

The Conservatives want to

  • initiate an independent investigation into the Speak Up initiative
