Norwegian University of Life Sciences Names First Ombuds

In December 2019, the public university in Ås, Norway (Norges miljø- og biovitenskapelige universitet), appointed Martin Gautestad Jakobsen as its first Studentombudet. He serves about 5,000 students across four different campuses and has an electric car for the commute. Jakobsen works 40% at NMBU and also serves as the Student Ombuds at Østfold University College.

Before his university appointments, Jakobsen worked as a criminal lawyer. He studied psychology and earned a Master of Law from the University of Bergen (Universitetet i Bergen).  (NMBU News; LinkedIn.)
