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.
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 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 we keep questioning ourselves, we continue to develop as a learning organisation. We take on societal challenges and get involved.
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.
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.
As an academic and educational institution, Bielefeld University holds a particular responsibility for the sustainable development of our society. We help find solutions to the diverse ecological, economic and social challenges through interdisciplinary research, while ensuring responsible teaching practices and a sustainable use of resources.
