2020 University Election

In the University elections, the representatives of the Senate, the University Council, the Faculty Councils and further student representatives in the Student Parliament of the University of Bayreuth are elected directly by members of the bodies to which they belong.

As the term of office of the acting representatives of the University instructors and of the academic and non-academic staff in the above-mentioned bodies will not end until 30 September 2021, only the student representatives are to be elected within the framework of University elections in the 2020 summer semester. Specifically, the term of office of the student representatives will begin on 1 October 2020 and end on 30 September 2021.

Juso Hochschulgruppe Bayreuth ​(Bayreuth Juso Unviversity Group)Hide

Social, sustainable, progressive.

Key demands (extracts)

  • Teaching and studying

    We aim to create an ideas pool with examples of excellent teaching to encourage lecturers to improve their own courses. We also wish to take up the positive aspects of the digital semester and incorporate its advantages such as more interaction and lecture recordings with classroom teaching. In addition, the training for tutors should be improved. They should receive an expense allowance for passed modules and not just a meagre certificate.

  • Sustainability
    StuPa’s sustainability strategy shows it has already seized the initiative for creating a more ecological university. Way to go. At the same time, however, you as students must be allowed to vote on additional charges such as parking fees. Beyond the strategy, we seek to promote a more bicycle-friendly campus and City. And we want to make sure that the cafeteria and Frischraum are more climate-friendly by offering a vegan and a vegetarian meal every lunchtime. There should also be a vegan option in the evening. That way, our food will protect the climate.

  • Campus life
    The restart after the coronavirus lockdown, for example at the University Open-Air or Campus Culture Week, must not be allowed to fail for financial reasons. At the same time, there should be a central event notice board to give initiatives more attention and provide an overview of the plethora of options.
  • Social matters
    The pandemic and the lockdown have plunged many students into problems - both financial and psychological. We aim to improve help in both areas. On the one hand, the University should offer interest-free social loans in future. On the other hand, we wish to provide short-term psychological support and set up a help line specifically for students.

LHG - Liberale Hochschulgruppe BayreuthHide

Progress needs freedom - democratic, liberal and digital into the future.

Key demands

  • Digital study
    "Digital teaching" and a course of study that moves with the times are more than just transferring events from the lecture hall to a "digital room".

    The development of a comprehensive hygiene concept by the university, so that face-to-face teaching is once again possible.
    The retention of the possibility to write exams as online exams.
  • Equal opportunities
    A liberal self-image is characterized by tolerance, cosmopolitanism and respect for the human being. As a liberal university group, we are in favour of a cooperation that embraces these principles in everyday life. For us the following applies: It does not matter where you come from, but where you want to go.

    Compulsory recording of all lectures in the winter semester 20/21 in order to achieve the greatest possible flexibility of study.
    An optional semester for students who are severely disadvantaged by the Corona crisis and its effects.
  • Sustainability
    For us, sustainable development of the university is more than just a discussion about parking fees and vegan cafeteria food. It must be possible for everyone to behave in a more environmentally conscious and resource-saving manner on their own responsibility.
    Prioritizing the university as an important hub in the bicycle traffic concept of the city of Bayreuth in order to relieve the public transport system.
    Student surveys and, if necessary, voting on every measure that is financially burdensome for the students but does not offer them a direct advantage.
  • Uncomplicated study
    Studying alone can be stressful enough. So there is no reason to complicate it unnecessarily by everyday problems.
    More sports and play equipment on campus, both outdoors and indoors (e.g. table football, more table tennis tables).
    Permanent use of the semester ticket with the help of the matriculation confirmation.

RCDS BayreuthHide

Our vision - for freedom. Progress. Responsibility.

Since 1978, we have been committed to university policy at our university that has one major goal above all else: To continually improve the study environment in its broadest sense for all students. The traditional student freedoms are a matter close to our heart. Above all, young scholars must be able to take responsibility for themselves in a self-determined manner - and not merely patronized. We will continue to work hard to achieve this!

Leading candidates for StuPa:

  • Christoph Hoffmann
  • Marco Gräßmann
  • Lea Dörfler

Key demands

  • Student mobility
    Above all, we are in favour of improving the public transport system to provide a reliable, cheaper, and comfortable alternative to car use, which is one thing we could well expect from the "University City of Bayreuth". At the same time we strongly object to parking fees at the University, because they would hit disadvantaged students and commuters the hardest, given that they are often dependent on their cars due to inadequate public transport.
  • Quality of study
    First and foremost, we demand the expansion of the digital offering of the University libraries with relevant databases, e-libraries, journals, and subject modules. These should also be accessible from home and not only on campus. This will relieve strain on the libraries and help to make studying more flexible. In addition, we are committed to continuous modernisation at the University, especially with regard to its libraries. 
  • Health and nutrition
    This area is an area close to our hearts, especially since the coronavirus pandemic. We would like to see an improvement of cafeteria services, an extension of the opening hours of Frischraum, the introduction of hygiene measures, and modernisation of the University gym.
