Governance structures

The German government and states rightly expect that as universities, we must be role models that act independently and use public tax money responsibly. To this end, and by virtue of our size, we require stable and professional management with a clear division of responsibilities between leadership and control. Relinquishing the developments of the past ten years and calling into doubt the role of the university council, for instance, would be a step in the wrong direction.
