Professor Ylva Fältholm assumed office as new Vice-Chancellor at the University of Gävle on 1 July, 2017. On Thursday 26 October, her assuming office is confirmed by an installation ceremony in the University auditorium Valhall.

Ylva Fältholm about the first 100 days:

I feel very much welcomed and everyone has been most kind and helpful.

I am very impressed with the University’s education and research. Now, I am looking forward to developing its activities during the years to come together with all the competent and committed members of staff whom I have met.

Actually, this impression corresponds to my first one, but it has been strengthened. I really feel as if I found the right university.
