The delegations of authority describe the powers that have been delegated by the SLU Board to the vice-chancellor or the faculty boards, and from the vice-chancellor to the head of university administration.
The SLU Board of Governors is the highest decision-making body at SLU.
The board usually meets six times a year. At these meetings, they decide on matters of a more general nature, e.g. on the allocation of funding and the content of the annual report and budget documents.
Most decisions, however, are delegated to the four faculty boards.
Decisions on issues not reserved for the board, or delegated to the faculty boards, are taken by the vice-chancellor.
The vice-chancellor in turn delegates authority to the head of university administration to decide on matters in that field.
There are three delegations of authority at the central level:
- The SLU Board's delegation of authority: Organisation and division of responsibility in relation to the SLU Board and bodies that report directly to it.
- Vice-chancellor's delegation of authority: Organisation and division of responsibility in relation to the vice-chancellor of SLU and members of staff who report directly to the vice-chancellor.
- Delegation of authority for the university administration (in Swedish only): Organisation and division of responsibility within the university administration.
Delegations of authority at the faculties
The four faculties have their own delegations of authority (only available in Swedish).
