Henrietta Huzell, director at CTF and lecturer of working life science at Karlstad University, will be the new vice dean of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences at Karlstad University.
- It is a fun assignment with big responsibility which I am looking forward to. Four fantastic years at CTF has given me the courage and desire to take on more responsibility. I am also glad that CTF’s former director, Patrik Larsson, is the dean. We have worked very well together before and it feels good to be working together again.
In her new assignment, Henrietta Huzell will be the dean’s deputy. The dean is the faculty executive director and chairman at the Faculty Board. The board is responsible for both research and education at the faculty. More concrete, the assignment it to be the vice chairman of the board, to lead the education committee and participate in a range of advisory boards and groups whose task is to develop the faculty and the university as a whole. Henrietta Huzell has been a member of the university board and has good insights into university-wide issues, which can be very useful in her new role.
- Since I left the University board last spring I have discovered that I miss working with issues regarding both education and research. And those comprehensive questions about training and working environment. These are topics that I long to work with again.
Henrietta will assume her new assignment on January 1st 2017.
