Section councils

Each academic section has a section council consisting of 3-4 tenured faculty members and headed by the head of section.

The section councils are involved in departmental matters of particular relevance for the section, and their main task is to support the head of section in decisions and discussions at the section level. This includes continuous as well as strategic issues, but excludes personnel issues other than mentoring of junior faculty.

The section councils facilitate communication of reflections and opinions in the section to the department management team, while at the same time providing involvement and improving transparency and understanding of decisions and priorities made by the department management.
