Candidate to becoming Vice-Chancellor to hearing

In a meeting on November 9, the recruiting committee for the appointment of new Vice-Chancellor has decided to let one candidate, Stephen Hwang, take one step further in the recruiting process – the hearing, which will take place on November 14.

Among the six applicants for the position as Vice-Chancellor, three applicants were initially assessed not to match the profile specification. The committee has performed an enhanced assessment of the three remaining candidates. One of them has, at a late stage, chosen to withdraw his application. Two candidates have been interviewed by the recruiting committee and after this, the committee agreed unanimously that only one of them was sufficiently qualified to become the Vice-Chancellor of Halmstad University. Stephen Hwang, at present Vice-Chancellor of Linnaeus University, is the candidate that the committee would like to present for the hearing.

Three different hearing groups will meet Stephen Hwang on November 14. All students and employees are requested to contact their representatives in the hearing groups (see below) to forward their questions and viewpoints. After the hearing, the Deans and the Acting Vice-Chancellor will also meet Stephen Hwang.

Each hearing group will leave a statement to the recruiting committee. In a meeting on November 21, the committee will draw up the proposal to the University Board. The Board has its next meeting on December 9 where it will make a decision of whom the members would like to see as a new Vice-Chancellor. This decision is sent to the government, the authority which appoints a new Vice-Chancellor.
