I am Dean of the Faculty of Health and Social Sciences, University of South-Eastern Norway. I believe we learn throughout life and that formal learning in a university can and should be transformative years of a person’s life. My job is to facilitate excellent learning conditions for students through our faculty and facilities, and make sure our students graduate with competence and skills that enable them to professional life and civic participation. We strive for our research activity and results to be in the forefront of our fields of expertise, as well as springing out of and being conducted in close collaboration with local communities.
