This follows the consultative assembly’s endorsement of the university board’s recommendation to appoint Hans Adolfsson as Vice-Chancellor of Umeå University from 1 July 2016. The government will make the formal decision, which is expected in February or March.

The Vice-Chancellor usually serves a six-year term, with the possibility of extending the term for a maximum of three years twice.
