University Council

Four women and three men largely determine the fate of the Ruhr-Universität Bochum at this time. Dr Ricarda Brandts, Prof. Dr Karin Donhauser, Prof. Dr Daniel Fallon, Birgit Fischer, Thomas Jorberg, Jürgen Schlegel and Prof. Dr Hildegard Westphal make up the new University Council of the RUB.

The six, who are appointed for five years, have far-reaching powers. The University Council plays a direct strategic role in determining the future development of the university and is responsible for supervising the operative business carried out by the university management.
