Faculty Administration

Target audience

The planning group’s primary audience consists of administrative managers and deputy managers at the faculty level.

Focus areas

The topics for the group are the current changes taking place in the sector. These include the changes in the academic and administrative organization, management through mergers and transition processes, and changes in management and governance. These changes and the increased national and international competition will push administrators to work more professionally and efficiently.

Activity goals for 2014‒2016

The group plan is to conduct seminars on the above-mentioned topics ‒ alone or with other groups. In collaboration with the finance group we have started to plan a joint seminar to examine how strategies develop from ideas to action and a seminar on evaluating the administration.

The next seminar, “How to Do More with Less” will be held 09–10 November at University of Turku, Finland
