Dean Johnny Laursen is head of the main academic area Faculty of Arts. He has academic and financial responsibility for the academic area.
The vice-deans handle a number of the day-to-day tasks of the Dean, and are members of the Dean's Office. The number of vice-deans reflects the need for strengthened strategic input at the university and is intended to ensure that interdisciplinary functions are securely based in the Faculty's academic environments.
The Faculty of Arts has three schools:
The school secretariats are in charge of the day-to-day administration of the schools at Faculty of Arts.
The Administration Centre Arts (ACA) performs supportive administrative tasks for the schools at the Faculty of Arts within the fields of HR, estates management, finance, IT, communication, and PhD and studies administration. Staff members of the Administration Centre Arts are responsible to the university director through the administration centre manager and the relevant division manager for the area in question.
The administration centre manager Ole Jensen is responsible for coordinating the administrative services in the administration centre.
The Administration Centre Arts is divided geographically, being partly at Aarhus Campus and partly at Campus Emdrup in Copenhagen.
