My aim is to continue the development of the University Collegium

The University Collegium needs continuation to develop. We have created new ways of doing and made our first important decisions during the past first four years. My aim is to continue this work, in order to enhance the influence of the owners of the "University Inc.", that is academic community, through the University Collegium.

I see that teaching and research personnel's knowledge of day-to-day academic activities should be exploited more as part of the open and conversational decision making. Although the essential statutory tasks of the University Collegium are adoptinng of the financial statements and the nominating the the external members of the Board of Directors, there could be also more powerful ways to cooperate between, for example, the University Board and the University Collegium as well as labor unions.

The University Collegium nominates three new members for the Board of Directors already during the year 2015. My duty after being elected is to make sure that these recruitments supports the main function of the university: teaching and research.
