The University Council supports the university in developing its goals and strategies through consultation and evaluation. It advises the Senate and the university management on the orientation and development of the university in national and international research, teaching, and social and technological development in Germany and worldwide and on the related strategic university planning within the framework of the decision-making responsibilities assigned to it under the basic regulations. Through its accompanying assessment, taking into account comparable national and international competitors, the University Council also contributes to the further development and quality assurance of research and teaching at the university.
