Mission: The University of Tübingen is committed to the highest standards of research and teaching across a broad spectrum of subjects. The University encourages interdisciplinary and international cooperation and upholds academic freedom in research and teaching, while acknowledging that the search for knowledge must be ethical. The University regards variety as essential to academic excellence and therefore supports equality between its members. It also provides further training in a variety of fields to equip its members with necessary non-academic skills.

Vision: Tübingen is among the world’s foremost universities and expressly supports common European values. These include the freedom of research and academia, the freedom of expression, the equality of all human beings and respect for human dignity, regardless of a person’s origins, religion, social status, gender, or sexual orientation. The University of Tübingen actively supports positive developments in society and peaceful coexistence, sustainable development, and the protection of the environment. We regard the diversity of our students and employees as a great strength. It is our paramount task to support them in their quest for knowledge and education. An important factor in the success of a university is the motivation of its employees. With this in mind, the University makes every effort to enable its students and employees to reconcile the demands of family with their studies and working lives.
