Students elected their representative to VMU Council
In the electronic vote of the Student Parliament of Vytautas Magnus University (VMU) held on December 7, it was decided to delegate Kęstutis Jasiulevičius to the VMU Council.
While still a student, K. Jasiulevičius was actively involved in the activities of the VMU Student Council and the Lithuanian Students’ Union. He currently is leading the Passenger Services Department at LG Link. K. Jasiulevičius has accumulated many years of experience in the field of business, working with human resources, communication, project management.
K. Jasiulevičius will strive for positive changes for students in the University Council: “First of all, my goal is to represent the interests of students as much as possible, to promote cooperation between the VMU community, to encourage VMU to implement the necessary changes.”
“Since K. Jasiulevičius was an active member of the student movement, the students’ problems are certainly not foreign to him,” says Paulius Vaitiekus, President of VMU SA. “He also tends to communicate directly with both Student Parliaments and student representatives in other parts of the university, which allows for a variety of solutions to be pursued more effectively.” According to the current positions, President of VMU Student Council (SA) represents students in the University Council.
