Emile is a subject association for those majoring in Education and Adult Education students in the University of Jyväskylä. Emile was founded in 1973 and has around 40 new members annually. Emile’s job is to protect and preserve the rights of the students in education and adult education; their wishes, wants, activity and ideas are what keep it alive.
Emile acts as a link between the staff of Department of Education and its student. Emile also collaborates with other education subject associations in Jyväskylä and other parts of the country.
The board and active members are a vital part of its functioning. The board is responsible for almost all the activity directed to the majors- the official and information-based, but also the less-official, such as leisure time, which consists of stuff like game-nights, versatile sport– and cultural events and other, uncategorized events such as sits fests.
