Johanna Sandahl started her position as the University’s new communications director on 28 September. She has been part of the organisation before but comes most recently from a position in the City of Malmö. Johanna Sandahl worked for many years as a communications director and communications officer at the Faculty of Medicine.

She knows parts of the organisation well and many members of staff are familiar with her also. She is now back and looking forward to taking on this new role. Johanna is the head of division for Corporate Communication, as part of the central administration, and will be responsible for the university-wide communication management.

“I am delighted to be back at Lund University. I know parts of Lund University well, but in this role, I will need to familiarise myself with the division, the central administration, all the faculties and even external partners that we collaborate with”.

“I will work towards ensuring that together we use our collective resources and expertise in a smarter way to get the most impact out of the efforts we put into communication. My hope is that the communications team will develop the professional support we offer the core activities to help them fulfil their primary missions,” says Johanna Sandahl.
