Mission Statement

The Julius-Maximilians-University of Wurzburg is an internationally famous university that offers a broad range of subjects. Nourishing close relationships with both its home town of Wurzburg and the surrounding region of Franconia, the university has produced achievements of worldwide significance in both research and teaching. This forms the bedrock of our identity, which we also see as our duty in order to continue the promotion of excellent teaching and research in all areas of science. Established in 1402, the university today offers over 100 degree programmes in the humanities and social sciences, in natural and life sciences, in medicine and in specific areas of engineering, out of which we prepare our students for a host of different careers. One of the university's important leitmotifs is to swantail its teaching with developments in current research. Our students work closely with leading researchers from all over the world and contribute to the promotion of science. One of our aims therefore is to strengthen interdisciplinary collaboration in order to work on fascinating questions that have arisen in different scientific contexts. Our central duty at the University of Wurzburg is to gain knowledge in all areas of science and transmit this to our students, the scientific community and the public in general. Teaching and researching at international level is seen in our responsibility towards the needs of society and the ethical values involved. This attitude is mirrored in our motto: 'Veritati', which ascribes itself to the search for truth. We assume social responsibility in the promotion of democratic civil rights, humanitarian ideals and a sustained use of resources.
