The University Administration

The administration is responsible for the implementation of, and reporting related to, strategies adopted by the board and the rector. The administration has a central role in supporting the university's teaching, research, dissemination and strategic activities.

​​​​​​​​​​Pro-rectors and directors each lead their own departments​​ in the joint services, and on behalf of the rector take responsibility for ongoing processes and areas of function​ throughout the entire institution. ​

The Nord University administration has the overall responsibility for the management and development of administrative tasks and services within study administration, research and innovation support, digitization and IT, personnel and organisation, property management, economy and communication. Library services are also part of the joint administration.

Each faculty also has its own faculty administration.​
