Nomination Committee


The Nomination Committee at LUSEM includes five scientifically competent teachers, two representatives for other employees and two students. The unions may each appoint their representatives who are offered the opportunity to attend and present proposals in the nomination committee. The students participate only in the work of preparing and submitting proposals to candidates such as Dean, Deputy-Dean and external members of the Faculty board.

The task of the Nomination Committee is to prepare nominations and make proposals for candidates in elections to the Dean and Vice-Dean, as well as members of the Faculty Board. The elections are carried out by the employees voting for the candidates. Regarding the Dean and Deputy-Dean, the formal decision to appoint them is in the end made by the Vice chancellor of Lund University.

The Nomination Committee works independently in relation to the current Faculty management and Faculty board. In its work, the committee strives for transparency and openness to various interests and views.

The Nomination Committee intends to anchor its work in a dialogue with the employees at a department and unit level. It must take into account that Lund University’s goal is to ensure a balance between the sexes within all bodies and boards. Balance means that representation of one sex must not be less than 40 percent of the members.

The Nomination Committee also intends to take into account that the Faculty board receives members representing the departments and organisation as a whole at LUSEM.
