The University of Helsinki aims to become one of the top 50 universities in the world by 2020. On January 18, 2012, the university’s board approved this strategic goal for the years 2013-2016. The strategy will be translated and made available in English during early 2012 at www.helsinki.fi/strategy.
Rector Thomas Wilhelmsson is very happy with the process by which the new strategy was crafted. The university community participated in large numbers to the discussion on the future of the university, which is also reflected in the result. In his video blog post Wilhelmsson sheds light on the top priorities of the strategy, and shares the strategic goal closest to his own heart.
Now that the guidelines for the future have been drawn, the next step is to bring the strategy into practice. In March, on all four campuses, all interested parties are encouraged to attend discussion events about the new strategy.
