Prof. Burckhart will remain Vice-President until November 30, 2018. Also Prof. Dr. Ulrike Beisiegel, President of the Georg-August-Universität Göttingen, was re-elected as Vice President for “Governance and University Management”.
Prof. Burckhart has been head of the department "Teaching and Studies, Teacher Training and Lifelong Learning" since 2012.
