From the nominations:
Jessica Carlsson: We are convinced that Jessica has played an important part in the successes of our subject (Human Rights).
She is deeply engaged in the teaching and research at the division, in a way that few other administrators are able or have the opportunity to be. With her solid expertise and major faculty-wide networks at Lund University, Jessica is an asset to the entire department when it comes to getting things done quickly and efficiently. We particularly want to highlight Jessica’s fundamental outlook – that administration is never an end in itself; rather, the task is about facilitating the University’s core activities by helping, supporting and training lectures, researchers and administrative staff. Jessica always looks out for the best interests of the students and the work situation of the staff. Having an experienced and service-minded administrator like Jessica around every day provides security, relief and inspiration to both staff and students.
Tobias Nilsson: With energy and a passionate interest in third-cycle education, Tobias has managed to get the faculty’s
departments to work towards high demands on quality. With indefatigable enthusiasm and creativity, he
has worked relentlessly to combine classic academic ideals within third-cycle education with the requirements
and ordinances that emanate from both the University itself and other sectors of society. With his dedication
and knowledge of the conditions of education and research, he has made the Higher Education Ordinance into
a useful tool for all of the faculty’s departments. He has also provided shape and structure to previously neglected
areas, and given the departments freedom with responsibility to develop their third-cycle education according to
their respective needs. His efforts in all aspects of the faculty’s third-cycle education have resulted in the utmost
quality, in terms of both design and content.
