Our faculty finds itself in an interesting transition period, driven by changes happening in the society. In fact, it needs to create a flexible organizational structure AND a new clearer vision for meeting the future challenges in education and research.
There is no question in my mind that to achieve these, our faculty needs to focus on inspiring leadership and not on (micro) management, listen to the needs of employees and students and provide the freedom to "dream" and to "excel"...
For achieving the above, the faculty council has an important role to play. It should not only critically evaluate the plans / strategies of the faculty management team but it should also contribute with new ideas and assist in shaping up a successful common vision.
My earlier participation to the faculty council, in the period 2011-2013, was quite productive and stimulating. If I am re-elected, I am willing to work with passion and engagement towards a new successful era for our faculty.
