Foundation: 1966

Mission: The University of Konstanz is a research-oriented reform university that accepts its responsibility to society by providing high-quality research and educational opportunities. It is committed to the basic idea behind a university, in that in order to generate scientific knowledge, close links between research and teaching have to be cultivated. Current and future social challenges are addressed through the university’s research and study programmes. To help empower society to enlighten itself, the University of Konstanz advances the principle of independence in research and teaching. This principle incorporates the expectation that researchers reflect ethically on their methods as well as on the consequences of their research findings on human beings and their environment. In keeping with these high standards, the university strives to ensure that its researchers and academics are provided the best possible conditions for internationally recognised top-level research. It aims to recruit highly qualified students, early career researchers and staff members, and to then support them in their personal and career development. All university members are encouraged to actively participate in and promote research, studies, teaching and self-administration at the university. To ensure that relevant social and institutional processes continue to benefit the university and its members, the University of Konstanz implements and follows the principles of sustainability.
