Stephen Hwang suggested as Vice-Chancellor

The University Board has decided on Stephen Hwang as the new Vice-Chancellor of Halmstad University. Stephen Hwang is a Professor of Physics, graduated from Chalmers University of Technology, and since 2010 the Vice-Chancellor of Linnaeus University in Växjö and Kalmar.

– I am very happy to be able to ask the government to appoint Stephen Hwang as Vice-Chancellor. He is a very experienced academic leader, and all the different groups of staff and students that have met him support him as our candidate, says Karin Starrin, chairman of the University Governing Board.

Stephen Hwang is 60 years old, and resides outside Malmö. After achieving his doctor's degree from Chalmers University of Technology, he spent several years teaching and researching, mainly at Karlstad University, where he was appointed Professor of Physics in 2000. In 2010, he became Vice-Chancellor at the Linnaeus University, at that time recently merged.

– I am convinced that Stephen Hwang, with his long experience and vast network within and outside the university sector, has excellent merits for leading and developing Halmstad University. The former Vice-Chancellor Mikael Alexandersson has laid a good foundation to refine and elaborate during the coming years, says Karin Starrin.

The University Governing Board has now sent its decision to the government, which is the authority that appoints a new Vice-Chancellor.
