Dear new colleague,

I would like to wish you welcome as a new employee at the University of Bergen - one of the most exciting workplaces in Western Norway.

People are the most valuable resource for a university. As an employee you will hopefully find that you contribute to "Knowledge that shapes society" - the university's vision.

UiB will provide a stimulating professional environment, nurtured by the diversity of academic disciplines and environments which characterize our institution. We will promote the advantages which stem from working at a robust knowledge institution.

My hope is that you will thrive and develop in an environment characterized by high professional aspirations and good colleagues!

I also encourage you to look further into the information we have gathered for our new employees at this web site.

Best regards,

Dag Rune Olsen, Rector UiB
