Dear members of the MOL
The success of university self-administration stands and falls with the commitment of members of the various stakeholder groups in committees and commissions. As the mid-level faculty organization, it is the central task of the MOL to bring in the perspectives and interests of, for example, doctoral students, postdocs, or teaching and research assistants through representatives in the corresponding committees and commissions.
Therefore, today's Infomail is dedicated to the upcoming elections of these representatives: The University Association has informed us of its intention to appoint a member of the MOL to its board. We are happy about the possibility to include the perspective of the MOL in the work of the University Association! Other current events include the upcoming elections for the MOL Board as well as open positions for representatives on two commissions. Details about the vacant positions and the MOL's commitment can be found below. We wish you a good read.
With best wishes,
Your MOL Board

NEW: MOL REPRESENTATION IN THE UNIVERSITY ASSOCIATION
The University Association promotes the development of the University of Lucerne, strengthens its ties to the population and works to raise financial resources. Founded in 1997, the politically and religiously neutral association has played a significant role in several cantonal and municipal votes, such as the founding of the university (2000), the location of the university building and the new building project (2006), as well as the revision of the University Law (2014) as the basis for the establishment of the Faculty of Economics and Management. Among other things, the University Association endows the awards for outstanding doctoral theses at the university. It currently consists of about 1200 members; membership is open to all individuals and legal entities. Website: www.unilu.ch/verein.
As of 31 March 2022, a new member will be elected to the Board of the University Association as part of a succession plan. The intention is not to appoint a professor, but to allow a member from among the mid-level faculty to serve in this important position.
Are you interested in representing the MOL in this politically significant position? Then apply by 27 February 2022, latest, at mol@ unilu.ch.
The improvement of the salary situation of senior assistants, the representation of the MOL in the search committee for the new rector, or suggestions such as for the establishment of the ombudsperson's office of the University of Lucerne are only a few topics that the representatives of the MOL deal with in the various university commissions and thus contribute to an improvement of our working and living conditions. With a commitment in the MOL, you can participate and contribute.
In March 2022, elections for the following positions will take place by circulation:
MOL-representative on the Board of the University Association
KSF representative on the MOL board
TF representative on the MOL board
WF representative on the MOL board
MOL representative on the Equal Opportunities Commission (GleiKo)
MOL representative on the University Teaching Commission (ULEKO)
Are you interested and would like to hand in your candidacy for one of the positions? Then mail to mol@ unilu.ch by 27 February 2022, latest, for the representation on the Board of the University Association and by 1 March 2022, latest, for all other positions.
If you have any questions or if you prefer to have a look into the activities of the MOL first, you are warmly invited to the next MOL meeting on 23 February 2022 (ZOOM). We are looking forward to meet you!
