The Faculty is led by the dean. The dean selects vice-deans to support him or her in the development of the Faculty, the implementation of the Strategic Plan of the University and the promotion of interdepartmental cooperation as determined by the dean. During the operating period 2018-2021, the Faculty is acting with two vice-deans, whose primary areas of responsibility encompass research, teaching  and Swedish-language affairs.
