Our Mission statement.

We open up and broaden horizons.

Our researchers transcend borders - between disciplines, between people and between science and society. The principle of 'Transcending Boundaries' is the driving force behind top-level basic research at an international level.

We inspire students.

Our innovative study model gives our students the opportunity to discover their potential and realise their individual talents. Students at Bielefeld University are willing to take on social responsibility over and beyond their course of studies.

We promote talented researchers.

Bielefeld University is the springboard for successful professional and personal biographies. We discover and support outstanding researchers, appoint them to their first professorship and offer them long-term perspectives.

We create space for bold ideas.

We encourage people to think outside of the box, to leave the beaten path and to ask provocative questions. Our interdisciplinary approach provides an ideal basis for this.

As a 'reform' university, we develop new ideas.

As we keep questioning ourselves, we continue to develop as a learning organisation. We take on societal challenges and get involved.

We successfully implement gender mainstreaming.

We create excellent structures for the further development of a gender-equitable research and university culture. We are working towards this goal with the greatest commitment.

We see ourselves as a university without prejudice.

Intercultural openness, equal opportunities and mutual respect determine our working environment. We cultivate respectful communication and a constructive conflict culture, even when this is uncomfortable.

We contribute to a sustainable and liveable future.
