The types of staff responsible for managing higher education institutions include the rector of the university or deputy rector, the principal, his/her deputy, the dean, the deputy dean, the leader of the medical or agricultural centre, the head of the independent education, scientific research or art sections, the secretary general and the director (general) for finance.

The rector is tendered for by the institution’s board among the university professors, and the Minister of Education and Culture submits the proposal of the winner’s appointment to the President of the Republic, the latter being exclusively authorised for such appointments. With non-state maintained institutions the submission of the proposal is the right of the maintainer, and the Minister only has the authority of agreement.


Requirements for Appointment as a Higher Education Institution Leader

The appointment of head of institution is conditional to an upper age limit that is 65 years of age completed, except when the defined time expires later. The appointment is for 3-5 years, which may be renewed once, on the basis of another tender. Appointment requires compliance with rigorous rules of financial and legal compatibility.

Employer’s rights over the university rector, rights over the college rector are exercised by the Minister responsible for Education who consults the Financial Board, and does not decide on appointment and exemption. Exemption of the head of the institution through recall may be initiated by the institution’s board, and the Minister may personally submit an initiative of recall to the institution’s board. Exemption is finally accepted or refused by the institution’s board through qualified majority. Employer’s rights are partly transferable on the institution.

The dean is selected from among university professors, and university associate professors, and the faculty’s principal is selected from among university professors, university associate professors, college professors by the faculty board, through tender according to the rules and regulations of the institution.

In institutions of tertiary education the appointment of the deputy rector, deputy principal, and the deputy dean, and the deputy of the heads of the organisational units are for specified periods. The head of no organisational unit may not be older than 65 years of age. Leading positions include the head of the non-independent education, scientific research, art sections, and the deputy director (general) for finance.

The head of the management unit is the secretary general subordinated to the head of the institution. The head of the financial organisation is the director (general) for finance. The financial director (general) is the deputy head of the institution. If the institutions regulations so provide, the financial director (general) is also the secretary general.

The competence and responsibility of leaders is described in the institution’s regulations. The competence of the leader includes exercising the employer’s rights with regard to university professors except for appointment and exemption, and appointment and exemption of educators and scientific researchers.

The competence and responsibility of leaders includes among others the direction of training, and scientific, artistic, management, and financial activities, right of representation, take charge of available budgetary appropriations, property, and other resources, and exercising the right of publication, and distribution.

The head of the institution may relegate his/her responsibility to the dean, the faculty principal, the director (general) for finance, the secretary general, or another person.

In carrying out his/her responsibilities, the leader has the general authority to issue instructions, and take action, but may instruct neither the institution’s management board, nor any other board in the institution, the students’ self-government, or the representative organisations operating inside the institution.

The leader of the institution may null all decisions, resolutions, measures that are in violation of any piece of legislation. An exception is the illegal decision of the institution’s board, in which case the leader may turn to the Minister of Education to have such a decision nullified. The institution’s board may exercise the same rights to have the institution leader’s illegal decisions nullified.

The rector and the principal bear personal responsibility for the institution regarding financial matters.

The faculty is represented by the dean or the faculty principal. His responsibilities are described in the institution’s regulations.
