RECTOR’S MESSAGE AT THE ANNUAL STAFF MEETING: GOOD REPUTATION, BUT WE CAN DO BETTER
In 2020, coronavirus was the order of the day with lockdowns and digitalisation of core services. The new year offers further development of the AAU strategy, a strengthening of the main areas of humanities and social sciences and a rethink of the university's PBL model which is no longer exclusive to AAU.
Faculty merger of Humanities and Social Sciences to future-proof AAU
On the recommendation of the Executive Management, the University Board has decided to unite the strengths of the humanities and social sciences in one new, more effective main area with the name: Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH). The merger aims to give Humanities and Social Sciences greater clout and better opportunities to develop future research areas and education – thus providing agenda-setting insights and solutions to the major global challenges. At the same time, a new PBL unit will take the AAU pedagogical model to new heights.
