President's Office

The staff of the president's office support the work of the presidential board administratively, organisationally and strategically. Their core tasks include the coordination of the strategic university development and the management of the central university committees.

In the context of strategic university development, the staff members support central funding applications and projects, the acquisition and support of cooperation partners, as well as the preparation of development plans, guidelines and documents for the presidential board‘s decision-making. The president’s office supports the communication of the presidential board both within the university and externally, for example with relevant ministries, university policy actors and networks.

The offices of the central university committees (presidential board, senate, board of trustees) prepare meeting documents and draft proposed resolutions, support the meetings, ensure the implementation of the resolutions and advise on general committee matters.

The president’s office creates links between university management, the faculties, schools and service institutions, the university community and the general public.
