SLUSS is the collaborative body for the student unions at SLU. SLUSS’ primary task is to collect the student’s views and make them known at the university’s very highest level. SLUSS’ second task is to promote collaboration between the unions.

Through SLUSS, students with a right to vote sit on important bodies like the SLU Board, the Vice-Chancellor’s Management Group, the Study Programmes Board and the Student Welfare Council.

SLUSS’ second task is to promote collaboration between the unions. With seven unions at the university, a body is needed where students can meet and discuss collaboration, ranging from exchanges of experience with each other to ensuring (as far as possible) that social activities do not collide with each other. 

Most of SLUSS’ work is done by two full-time fee-remunerated students who have taken a one-year sabbatical. In order for them to know how the unions want them to work, SLUSS has a board consisting of one representative from each of the unions’ boards and one representant of the PhD’s.

In addition to the two people working with study monitoring, SLUSS has over 200 students who monitor studies at programme and faculty level through their union alongside their studies.
