The award for zeal and integrity in the kingdom's service (NoR)

You are eligible for this award when you have served 30 years for the state and have shown "zeal and integrity". Each year SLU hold a festive ceremony in Alnarp, Skara, Ultuna and Umeå to confer the award.

Inauguration of the Vice-Chancellor

Beside the doctoral award ceremony, the inauguration of the Vice-Chancellor is the most important and oldest tradition. On 6 September 2019, Maria Knutson Wedel was inaugurated as new Vice-Chancellor to the university.
