“I am excited to start at JYY and looking forward to the new students arriving this autumn. I’ve received a warm welcome at JYY and I want to share that same sentiment to the entire university community. In the midst of uncertainty, I think it’s important that we stop to think about how we can come together as a community and how we can support students equally”, Kekkonen says.

JYY’s Specialist in Social Affairs advocates for students’ interests in issues relating to social policy, for example, regarding well-being, health, equality and accommodation. In addition, the Specialist in Social Affairs advises students with issues relating to these topics.
