1.2 University Management and Management Council
The Vice-Chancellor is the head of the University as a public authority. The Vice-Chancellor has a deputy, titled Deputy Vice-Chancellor, who serves in the Vice-Chancellor´s place when he or she is not on duty and who otherwise substitutes for the Vice-Chancellor to an extent determined by the Vice-Chancellor.
The Vice-Chancellor´s Management Council is a body that supports and advises the Vice-Chancellor. The Management Council consists of the Vice-Chancellor, the Deputy Vice-Chancellor, the Vice-Rectors, the University Director, and three student representatives. The Management Council makes no decisions. However, it is assumed that the Vice-Chancellor will consult with the Management Council in matters of principle and strategy.
