In this part of the training you will learn more about how Folkuniversitetet's organisation functions and to which region your office belongs.
The regional offices
Folkuniversitetet consists today of five free-standing foundations and is divided into five regions with seats in Lund, Gothenburg, Stockholm, Uppsala and Umeå. Trustees of the foundations are the universities and the student unions in the places mentioned, and Folkuniversitet's federation. At Folkuniversitetet's federation chancellery in Stockholm we coordinate our joint development work and work, among other things, on communication, observation of the outside world and the regulatory structure of adult education.

Web and Social media
On our homepage, www.folkuniversitetet.se, you can find information about Folkuniversitetet and the enterprise we operate. On the home page it is also possible to apply for courses and training. Most of the offices have their own sites on the web where local information and current activities are presented. You can find these pages by going to the tab "here we are" [Sw. här finns vi] in the menu on www.folkuniversitet.se.
For communication and collaboration within Folkuniversitetet there is a common intranet. The intranet is called Infu, and on it you can read about current events and find contact information for employees. On Infu you can also follow joint development projects within the organisation.
