Following thorough discussions between the rector, the Dean's Office and department heads at ST, and based on input from numerous staff meetings, the proposal to divide ST into two new faculties was submitted for consultation on 26 April. The consultation process has now been completed.

Rector Brian Bech Nielsen would like to thank everyone who has submitted consultation responses.

"We’ve received a lot of good and constructive contributions and comments. The model for dividing ST was generally well-received, and there has been a positive dialogue at all levels. I’ll now read the consultation responses more closely before we prepare the final proposal for the Board," says Brian Bech Nielsen.

At ST, all departments, the Academic Council, the administrative centre, the Dean’s Office, the Faculty Liaison Committee, FAMU, the boards of studies and the students have been involved in the consultation process. At the other three faculties at AU, relevant parties have been involved, including the faculty management team, the academic councils and the liaison committees. Furthermore, LEA, ASU, HSU and the student organisations have been consulted.

The AU Board will discuss the proposal at its meeting on 7 June. If the Board approves the proposal, a number of working groups will be set up in the autumn to submit proposals for administrative support for the two new faculties.
