Torgny Segerstedt

The Segerstedt Building has been named after Torgny Segerstedt (1908–1999), former Vice-Chancellor at Uppsala University (1955–1978).

Segerstedt’s time as Vice-Chancellor was eventful and included the extensive modernisation of the Swedish system of higher education, not least the 1964 statutory instrument for universities and the 1977 university reform.

In the course of these 23 years, more students were admitted than during the entire prior history of Uppsala University, i.e. from 1477 to 1955.
