Responsibilities

The Rectorate is the executive governing body of the University. All University affairs are incumbent upon the Rectorate as long as they do not expressly fall under another purview. The Rectorate is made up of the Rector, the Chancellor, and four Vice-Rectors. The Rector chairs the Rectorate.

 

Goals

The current Rectorate, under the direction of Professor Ernst Schmachtenberg, aims at further developing RWTH Aachen into a strategically leading university with high international visibility.

For this reason, the Rectorate has put forth great effort since the beginning of its term, along with numerous representatives of the university to create a comprehensive strategic plan, the Strategy 2009-2020.

 

Principal Responsibilities

The Rectorate has principal responsibility for planning, controlling and coordinating faculty and interdepartmental functions as well as securing adequate allocation of resources for the academic requirements.

The Rectorate dedicates its efforts to promoting the development of the University and contributes to internal and external university communications and co-operation.

A particular focus of the Rectorate's is the successful implementation of the institutional strategies from the Excellence Initiative. Using the profile areas, interdisciplinary research is promoted in the essential areas of expertise. Here it is necessary to establish working ability and to review the strategy for its effectiveness. Another tool was created with the strategy funds, which serve to allow the university to be fully equipped in crucual fields of research. Here it is also necessary to prove the effectiveness of these instruments.

Aside from the implementation of plans from the Excellence Initiative, the Rectorate is particularly considered with providing its most important university members and students with studies that are organized and as smooth as possible, with high but also transparent and fair demands. This is reflected in the current efforts of the Rectorate to increase the success rate and in the comprehensive preparations in the special G8 project for the double class cohort on the part of the entire university

 

The Rectorate Team

The Rectorate is supported in its diverse activities by a small team made up of a personal assistant to the Rector, the Rector's secretary, and the Vice-Rectors' secretary and employees.
