Legal Framework at Umeå University
In August 2008, the Vice-Chancellor approved a new basic structure for the all governing documents at the university.
The reason for this was the absence of a collective structure and a uniform terminology for legal framework documents. A collective overview of legal framework documents at Umeå University promotes the follow-up and dissemination of current regulations, and reduces the risk for overlapping of the documents. On the side of this page, a collection of university-wide legal framework documents that have been approved by the University Board or Vice-Chancellor are listed. They all have the objective of governing the organisation in a certain way.
Publication on this website is in accordance with the main groups in the Registry plan: Organisation, Finance, Personnel, Property, Environment and IT, as well as Education and Research. Legal framework documents will be published regardless if they are audited or not. As the documents are reviewed, the older documents will be exchanged for the newer versions. The English translations of the documents are presented on this page. All the documents under each main group can be found via the links on the right.
