This became clear after the matter was considered by the University Board on 25 November.

The position of dean is a fixed-term post that Wergeland has held for the past four years, and she will now continue to serve until 31.12.2024.

“I am very happy to continue for four more years. I am so proud of our faculty and did not feel I had completed my task as a dean”, says Wergeland.

As a dean, she is the faculty's academic leader and a member of rector's leadership team.

“Marit has done an outstanding job as dean at the Faculty of Fine Arts over the past four years, and I look forward to continue working with her”, says Rector Sunniva Whittaker.

Wergeland has been employed at UiA since 2002 and is an associate professor of theatre.
