On the University Board’s web page, you can see the case documents for the next board meeting (they will be published one week prior to the actual meeting), as well as case documents and decisions from previous meetings. There are 8 to 10 board meetings a year.
Board meetings are open unless otherwise has been decided by the board. At the end of each board meeting, there is usually time reserved for exchanging information between the board members. This part of the board meeting is usually closed.
An elected Rector and a permanently employed Director are responsible for the day-to-day operations of the University of Agder. The University Board is the highest body of the university, with a majority of its members elected by the staff and the students and a minority of external members who are appointed by the Ministry of Education and Research.
The University Board has a special responsibility for strategy development and the financial situation of the institution, and has appointed sub-committees which deal with selected issues on the authority of the board. The Academic Affairs committee, the Learning Environment committee, the Research Committee, the Academic Appointments committee and the Non-academic Appointments committee are all examples of such sub-committees. The Appeals committee has also been appointed by the board, but enjoys an independent position in accordance with the regulations of the Act of Universities and University Colleges. The committee is to discuss and decide in matters concerning appeals of individual decisions and other appeals from the students.
