Points of contact in the administration
While strategic decisions are made by the University Governing Board, a large number of units are needed to implement them and maintain day-to-day operations. This is ensured by University Administration, as well as the staff and service units. No matter whether you have questions about a procurement process, would like to communicate your research results to the media, or are a journalist looking for experts on a current topic, This is where you will find your contact.
The University Administration units report to the Provost. They work in a supportive capacity for academic operations as well as for administration.
Several administrative divisions known as staff units (“Stabsstellen”) directly report to and support the President and Provost. The staff units act as contact persons for the public as well as for employees, scholars, and students at the University of Bayreuth.
A range of service units provide guidance and support for researchers, lecturers, and students and report to the members of the University Governing Board. The employees of the service units act as contact persons for the public as well as for employees, scholars, and students at the University of Bayreuth.
