Our efforts go into realising Karlstad University’s vision 2018
At Karlstad University we pool our strengths and move in the same direction – our efforts are summed up in Vision 2018. A vision is a unifying force providing stability. It shows how we would like to progress as a University.
- If there is a vision, an organisation can gather around major decisions. My hope is that our vision will contribute to a greater understanding and support of the goals of our joint efforts. Vision 2018 defines the role we would like to play, says Vice-Chancellor Åsa Bergenheim.
