– It is good news that the Board has decided to ask the Government to renew the Vice-Chancellor’s appointment. Under the leadership of Martin Norsell, the University has established a strategy in which cohesive academic environments are central, where the focus is on high-quality education, research, and collaboration. The fact the Board has decided to extend the Vice-Chancellor’s term of office means there is a sound basis on which to further develop the University and continue our future work with full force, states Chairperson of the Board, Christina Bellander.
Prior to the Board's proposal, teachers, other staff members, and management were asked to submit their views and opinions. The proposal has also been negotiated according to MBL (Co-Determination in the Workplace Act).
The Board’s proposal to extend Martin Norsell’s term of office for the period 1 May 2024 to 30 April 2027 will now be presented by Chairperson Christina Bellander to the Government.
