Deputy Rector

The Rector appoints a deputy rector (Prorettore Vicario) from among tenured full professors. The deputy rector replaces the rector in all the Rector’s duties in case of absence or impediment and carries out the functions delegated to the deputy rector by rector's decree.

Without prejudice to the rector’s responsibilities of initiative and coordination, the rector may also rely on another deputy rector in the exercise of his/her functions, chosen from among tenured full professors and appointed by a decree specifying the deputy rector’s powers.

The deputy rector participates, in an advisory capacity, in the meetings of the Academic Senate and the Administrative Council. In the absence of the Rector, the deputy rector chairs the Academic Senate and the Board of Directors with full vote.
