The two vice deans appointed for each faculty are a central part of the management system. In addition to faculty management teams, they help to develop University-level operations as members of the Science Council and the Education Council, depending on their areas of responsibility. 

– Having a vice dean responsible for education from each faculty in the Education Council makes it possible to fulfil a long-term wish to develop education strategically, determinedly, in a broad-based manner and innovatively by benefiting from the cooperation of different disciplines, says Vice Rector Marja-Leena Laakso

– Vice deans responsible for research will have a central role when outlining science policies at the University. The first large-scale common effort of the new Science Council will be the evaluation of research in 2018. I eagerly wait our cooperation to promote research, adds Vice Rector Henrik Kunttu.
