External Advisory Board on Internationalisation of the University of Göttingen


Following up to the successful internationalisation processes at the University of Göttingen within the framework of the "Excellence Initiative" and the German Rectors' Conference audit and re-audit "Internationalisation of Universities", the University of Göttingen established an External Advisory Board in 2014 to advise on the internationalisation of the university. It supports the University of Göttingen in strengthening its international profile and advises in strategic and operational questions concerning internationalisation.

The Advisory Board on Internationalisation of the University of Göttingen consists of renowned national and international experts in the areas of internationalisation of higher education. About half of the advisory board members are associated with strategic partners of the University of Göttingen’s strategic partners, such as the Göttingen Campus, the U4 Network, the Coimbra Group and the European University Association. "The great success and added value through the exchange with the Advisory Board is already noticeable", says Dr. Uwe Muuss, head of the International Office.

On the annual meetings, the university's President and especially Prof. Hiltraud Casper-Hehne, Vice-President for International Affairs, invite various representatives of the university to report on their international activities and to discuss their further developments.
