Mission and Responsibilities

According to Article 4, Para. 1, Clause 1 BayHSchG, in exercising their function, universities promote the actual implementation of gender equality and consider this a guiding principle; they work towards eliminating existing disadvantages. The women's representatives, according to Article 4, Para. 2 BayHSchG, strive to eliminate disadvantages to female researchers, lecturers, and students; they support the university in exercising its function as outlined in Para. 1.

Pursuant to Section 54, Para.1, Clause 1 of the University of Regensburg's statute, the university women's representative and her deputies are elected by the senate upon the president's recommendation to a four-semester term of office. Full-time arts and science personnel at the University of Regensburg are eligible for this position. She is a voting member of both the governing board and the senate. Furthermore, she has an advisory function on UR's executive board. 

The faculty women's representatives endeavour to enhance equal opportunities and to increase the compatibility of family and career or studies. Pursuant to Section 54, Para. 1, Clause 1 of the University of Regensburg's statute, they are elected by the faculty board upon the dean's recommendation from among UR's full-time arts and science personnel.

This forum also allows for cross-faculty cooperation, which is indispensable for working successfully in the complex area of equal opportunities and family.

University Women's Representatives Timeline

The office of the women's representative was introduced into the 1989 Bavarian Higher Education Act and was thereupon added to the 1989 University of Regensburg's statute. 

In the summer semester of 1989, the first university women's representative was named in UR's course catalogue. We would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank all female researchers who have served in this office with such extraordinary commitment since its inception!
