Policy documents

The nation's activities are ultimately governed by its statutes, completely revised in 2006 and then updated as necessary.

Chapter 1, 1 § describes the nation's task:

Norrlands nation in Uppsala has the task, as a politically and religiously independent association of students mainly with ties to the counties of Jämtland, Västernorrland, Västerbotten and Norrbotten, to create an environment that promotes the members' studies, well-being and personal development during their studies in Uppsala.

Core values

The values of the Norrland Nation are defined by its members. The nation continuously identifies and defines its core values and what they mean for the organisation, in order to constantly work on implementing and developing them. The values are a tool used by the members to create the nation they want to be part of. The core values are not a governing document, but a working tool that defines how we as members want to behave in the organisation. The core values permeate the entire organisation, with the three most important being commitment, joy and community.
