Responsibility and organisation

The vice-chancellor has the overall responsibility for the quality of education at the University. In accordance with the rules of procedure for Lund University, the faculty board has the overall responsibility for the quality enhancement work within its organisation. This responsibility is clarified in the Regulations on quality assurance and quality enhancement at Lund University. 

The pro vice-chancellor for third-cycle education, widening participation, and quality assurance and enhancement has an overall perspective and acts as a link between the vice-chancellor’s office, the Education Board, the Research Programmes Board and the Quality and Evaluation office, as well as external forums and collaborations.

The Research Programmes Board deals with strategic third-cycle education matters that are university-wide and therefore not at the faculty-level. The Research Programmes Board handles quality matters relating to third-cycle studies, and is primarily a preparatory and advisory body. The vice-chancellor may delegate decisions on certain issues to the board.
