Weekly video update with the Dean

This week, the Dean informs you about some issues from the Faculty Board meeting. Kristina Allder is new as teacher representative and Mats Syde as union representative in the board. The chair of the Faculty Board, Per Warfvinge, was assigned to initiate an external review of the possibilities for establishing civilingenjörsutbildning at Malmö university. This is a question of great importance for TS and more information will follow.

Further, the board was informed of the financial result of 2019, where TS had a negative result of -3,9 million SEK. The main reason for the negative numbers is unforeseen increases in costs related to teacher overtime, student assistants and booked classrooms. Further analysis will be done to ensure that the right measures can be taken for this years budget.

Please remember that you should unbook any un-needed classrooms two weeks in advance. So if you have booked a classroom in Kronox, and you find that it is no longer needed, do unbook it to avoid the cost and to free the room for other users.

Also, remember to update your IdService contact information, find it here https://idservice.mau.se/Secure/EduroamAccounts.aspx . Make sure your contact information, such as office room number, is correct.

For the Malmö University’s annual ceremony, we are now welcoming proposals for honorary doctor 2020. An honorary doctorate is an expression of the faculty’s appreciation of outstanding efforts within any of the faculty’s areas. This can apply to both research efforts relevant to the faculty and to recognition and visibility of ongoing or future valuable collaborations. Furthermore, it can be about academic efforts as well as recognition for people working outside the academy. See the email from Susanne Lundborg for further details, and send your nominations to her.
