Nearly thirty years ago, Willy Brandt, in his capacity as chair of the North-South Commission, foresaw the emergence of that world and likened it to the ‘rise of a new civilization.’ It would bring with it challenges unprecedented in magnitude and complexity, yet it would also enable new ways of addressing these, based on the heightened awareness of global interconnectedness and the clear-headed confidence in the possibility of collective political action. The Brandt School’s mission over the past ten years has been to capacitate future policy-makers from around the world along these premises. It has done so by combining the time-tested curriculum of the grand North American public policy schools with the distinctive perspective that its location at the very center of Europe and at the crossing point between West and East, ‘old’ and ‘new’ entails. The resulting Brandt School approach stands out through its systematic trans-disciplinarity, its comprehensively global focus, and its methodical linking of theory and practice. It is also at the cutting-edge of our times, taking the geopolitical rise of the global South as seriously as the continuing relevance of the legacy of the global North. It is neither limited to mature democracies, nor to elite decision-making, but encompasses all types of policy environment, from state administration to non-state governance, from conflict and transition to development and conservation. In this, it purposely seeks to go beyond the provision of technocratic expertise and instead aspires to endow its students with the analytical toolkit needed to understand and interact with the functional logic behind political, social, and economic processes in a diversity of operational theatres. Along these lines, the Brandt School has been educating future leaders in government, civil society, and private enterprise. Its teaching is embedded in a dynamic and highly innovative research environment in which cutting-edge public policy themes are explored in an integrated manner and the methodological frontiers of the social sciences expanded. Understood as a discipline of disciplines, public policy sits at the interface between theory and practice, understanding and engagement, knowledge, and politics. Thanks to its partners, and in particular the Haniel Foundation, the Brandt School has been able to make the most of its unique location in Thuringia’s capital Erfurt, in the very centre of the unified Germany, imbued with deep historical significance from the Reformation to the Thirty Years' War, from Weimar to the Wall, with close infrastructural and intellectual ties to other important centres, Berlin, Frankfurt, Dresden, Prague, to name but a few. It is a setting in which the sort of reflective space required for policy-makers of the future thrives. It is the place to be! [-]

Coburg University (Bavaria)

Germany Coburg October 2018

Profile Coburg University is a public university financed by Bavarian State Ministry of Education, Science and the Arts. As its English translation “University of Applied Sciences and Arts” suggests, a Hochschule is characterized by practice-related teaching and research as well as a strong practical bias. Its educational philosophy is designed to enable its students to apply their theoretical knowledge and methodological know-how to solving concrete problems in their pro… [+] fessional careers. During their studies, the students at Coburg University are systematically trained to develop those skills. To make sure that students never lose sight of the practical relevance of what they are learning, both full-time and part-time faculty are required to have gained ample experience in leading positions in business and administration. With the exception of art-related programs, the standard length of bachelor’s degree programs is seven semesters, one of which is, as a rule, in an internship. The practice-oriented approach to teaching is demonstrated by a required internship the small size of classes allowing individual attention to be given to students lab and field work, simulation games, project-centered education, and field trips the faculty’s wide range of practical experience A few numbers Organization 6 academic departments 1 Academic Center for Sciences and Humanities 5 scientific institutions Academic Programs 20 bachelor’s programs, including 8 dual programs 16 master’s programs, including 2 international master’s programs 97 international partner universities Students 5,000 students (50 % female, 50 % male) 100 scholarship recipients 900 graduates (per year) Personnel 120 professors 2 endowed professorships 500 staff members in teaching, research, and administration Practical experience while studying As recent studies on the career of university graduates show, only those who have combined theory with practice while studying are prepared for a positive start in their career. At the Coburg University, all undergraduate programs include a required internship. Project work – oftentimes across disciplinary boundaries – is part of student life. And seminars and projects with companies and social institutions are common components of our programs of study. The Coburg University is in intensive contact with professionals. In addition, all professors must have worked for several years in their field before being appointed to the university. The professors’ practical experience benefits the students, especially in their projects and theses, in which they must solve problems with a high degree of practical relevance. The big picture At the very core of science and education are curiosity and the joy of exploration. The wider the field of vision, the more there is to discover: The Coburg University is doing its part to ensure that students can develop to their full potential. The Academic Center for Sciences and Humanities offers a wide range of lectures and seminars in various academic fields, such as philosophy, history, natural and human sciences, and languages. Experts and periodically report on their fields. Learning about culture – and learning through culture itself – is something our students do in a variety of initiatives. These include the cultural offering “Caution Feeling”, the university choir, the cabaret group and the debating society. Interdisciplinary and individual - the Coburg way The demands of studying are increasing: Young people are expected to begin studying earlier, to acquire a great deal of knowledge in a short time and to develop their social skills. In our opinion, this is only possible in an integrated model. Groups of students from a variety of programs cooperate to complete interdisciplinary projects that are integrated into the programs of study, thereby honing their soft skills, such as communication and teamwork. They learn to recognize what is important in solving problems and to use their knowledge effectively. At the same time, the individual support of students is becoming more and more important. This is because access to higher education is now very diverse. Students come to the university with different strengths and weaknesses: one has completed a vocational education program without academic preparation in secondary school, another has a foundation of theoretical knowledge but little practical experience. To compensate for this, we offer our students comprehensive individual counseling services. This interdisciplinary program with the individual attention it provides to students is the cornerstone of „The Coburg Way“. This project has been fully funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research over several years. Family-friendly University "As humans, we need family-friendliness." This aspect of our mission statement is reflected in the certificate "Family Friendly University". As one of the first universities in Germany, in 2007 Coburg University received the basic certificate from berufundfamilie gGmbH, an initiative of the Hertie Foundation. A re-audit took place in 2014. Students, teachers, and employees are equally involved in the auditing process. The topic "Compatibility of family and studies or work" is a central concern of Coburg University. By improving the conditions, students and university staff who take on family responsibilities are equally supported. Family friendliness is not only aimed at families with children. Rather it also includes the increasing proportion of families who assume responsibility for the care of relatives. Students and staff receive support in the Family Office of the university. [-]

Bergische Universität Wuppertal

Germany Wuppertal October 2018

Founded in 1972, the University of Wuppertal (UW) is still young. Its twin goals are academic excellence in its individual disciplines and the consistent development of the interface between these disciplines and the world of practical experience – in a word, the transfer of knowledge and technological know-how. With a combination of disciplines that is somewhat unconventional for a German university, UW offers interesting possibilities – for example in subject combinations for… [+] teaching degrees, in interdisciplinary cooperations between the Faculties of Engineering and Economics, or in the field of Safety Engineering, where UW's degree program is unique in Germany. The university's reputation as a force in business and industry goes beyond its role in regional economics. Its business startup and marketing program provides young entrepreneurs with a first-class springboard that once again in 2007 – as in 2005 – won Wuppertal number one position in the German university rankings. Vision The University of Wuppertal is a modern, independent university in the Humboldtean tradition. Teaching and research profiles The establishment of specific research and teaching profiles serves the purpose of bundling existing strengths, developing new synergies, and enhancing the impact of the university across the whole range of its achievements and potentialities. Policy Statement The University of Wuppertal sees the fulfillment of its mission and the promotion of its academic profile as intimately connected with the following values and principles. The three university campuses UW has three campuses. The Main Grifflenberg Campus and the Freudenberg Campus & guesthouse are situated on the southern side of the Wupper valley. The Main Grifflenberg Campus is on Gauss Str. and the Freudenberg Campus is on Rainer-Gruenter-Str. The Haspel Campus is in Unterbarmen (Haspeler Str. / Pauluskirchstr.). History of the University The University of Wuppertal was established in 1972 as part of the North Rhine-Westphalian (NRW) drive to create a practically oriented (or 'comprehensive') higher education sector. Already existing HE institutions in the region, like the Schools of Engineering, Industrial Art, and Education, were assimilated into the new format and expanded to incorporate new departments. A leading figure in this development was the locally born then NRW Minister of Science and Research, later Prime Minister of North Rhine-Westphalia and Federal German President, Johannes Rau. In 2003 the so-called 'Comprehensive University of Wuppertal' was re-styled simply 'University of Wuppertal'. The initial 3473 students by now numbered 20,000. A main focus of degree programs remained on the traditional Wuppertal subjects of engineering and science on the one hand and art and design on the other, with economics and the humanities given new prominence and state examinations for future school teachers offered in a wide variety of subjects. The roots of the UW Faculty of Engineering, as of the Faculty of Art and Design, go back well into the 19th century. [-]

They envisaged a place of education that unites and focuses on brand knowledge with a passion for brand stories – while not forgetting that education and creativity are two parts of one inseparable whole. A place that brings together cultures from the Eurasian region. It was this thinking which the university was born. Categorised as a university of applied sciences, the Brand Academy overlooks the River Elbe in Hamburg – itself a city of brands. It is the first university to focus on brands – the central strategic success-factor in national and international businesses. Brands are exciting stories – and our students are the future authors of those stories. The Brand Academy is a government-recognised private university offering internationally accredited Bachelor’s and Master’s degree courses. We place great emphasis on a culture of creativity, curiosity and open-mindedness. Our university is a place of learning which combines scientific research and close collaboration with brand-name companies in Europe and Asia. THE MISSION OF THE BRAND ACADEMY: We investigate, develop and teach brands. Application-oriented, interdisciplinary and practically-based – we teach the knowledge of brand management, design and communication, and we promote intercultural, targeted networking to help our students to develop personally during and after their studies. THE VISION OF THE BRAND ACADEMY International competence centre in the field of brands with a focus on Eurasia. THE VALUES OF THE BRAND ACADEMY The way we think and act is guided by a set of binding values: Appreciation Dialogue Commitment Professional excellence Interculturalism APPRECIATION: We always adopt a positive attitude towards and value other people; respect and recognition are the basis for a pleasant and lively atmosphere of learning and working. DIALOGUE: We promote internal and external dialogue between students, professors, lecturers and practical partners, and between different departments and different cultures. We gain new knowledge through exchange and by reflecting together. COMMITMENT: We demand dedication, enthusiasm and discipline of our students so that they achieve the optimum learning experience. We care about more than just technical performance – we support each individual in their personal development. PROFESSIONAL EXCELLENCE: We are guided by a willingness to give our best and to find new ways of tackling problems. We encourage our students so as to facilitate for them an efficient, successful course of studies and a promising professional future. INTERCULTURALISM: Students from many different countries work efficiently with us in their education, their research and their practical projects. This intercultural environment we have established provides our students with experience and expertise which aid them in their personal development and give them a decisive advantage in their professional lives.

Witten/Herdecke University (UW/H)

Germany Witten October 2018

Witten/Herdecke University (UW/H) was founded and state recognized in 1983 and ever since has been a pioneer among Germany’s higher education institutions. Over a period of 30 years, we introduced significant innovations in research and teaching. As a model university, we stand for dynamic reforms of the traditional alma mater and the pursuit of a humanistic educational concept adapted to the challenges of our modern knowledge society. In adherence to Humboldt’s educational ide… [+] als, we perceive ourselves as an entrepreneurial university and strive to integrate research and student education, provision of scientific services, practical application and social responsibility. Theory-based and practice-oriented teaching at UW/H is always associated with the acquisition of subject-related, methodical, social and cultural competencies, value orientation and personal growth. Witten researches. Research at UW/H is interdisciplinary, highly diverse as to methodology, and focuses on well-defined areas. As a private university with a moderate percentage of state funding in our budget, we feel obliged to contribute something to society in return for the funds we receive. One way to do so is to generate innovative research results. Real-life problems call for transdisciplinary research. The social relevance of our chosen fields of research is as important in this respect as the transparent and generally understandable publication of research findings. Numerous UW/H projects are third-party financed. Over 40 applications for third-party funds were successful in 2010 alone. Our researchers cooperate with renowned national and international partners. All UW/H Faculties strive to address new and previously unexplored research areas and thereby to trigger significant developments. Witten educates. Education is much more than training for the job. In addition to subject-related expertise and skills, we also convey methods and strategies which enable our students for the rest of their lives to cope with complex and permanently changing demands of the modern knowledge society, either as generalists with specialization competencies or as specialists with a broad general basis of knowledge. In line with the Witten didactics, student education is problem-oriented, state-of-the-art and close to practice. Personal growth is another of our core objectives. Interdisciplinary – undisciplined Following Humboldt’s educational concepts, UW/H students study in small groups with an excellent student-teacher ratio and sufficient time and space to discover their talents and potentials and form their own opinions. Students are encouraged to think in wider contexts and assume social responsibility in and beyond a chosen discipline. The economic, ecological and social challenges of the future will certainly not respect the boundaries of academic disciplines. Witten – fundamental. Fundamental studies are a core element of the Witten/Herdecke identity. They foster out-of-the-box thinking. They embody the university’s guiding idea and facilitate learning processes beyond subject-related expertise. Here students tackle questions for which we have no ready answers, or for which there may be no answers at all. Education needs protracted reflection and a change of perspective needs alienation and distance from self and the world. Fundamental studies offer this opportunity to call a halt. They constitute an undisciplined and decelerated approach to a wealth of perspectives between reflection, communication, and art. Fundamental studies are the contemporary successor of ancient schools of the art of life and studia humanitatis. Among Germany’s universities the UW/H fundamental studies are the oldest and most sophisticated model that integrates academic issues and questions related to society, the arts, social justice, concern for one’s personal future, politics, psychology, philosophy and history, and assesses their relevance for an individual’s attitude, actions and conduct of life. In an increasingly complex, rapidly changing and insecure world, prospective physicians, entrepreneurs, managers, politicians or consultants need methodical, social, ethical and cultural competences as much as subject-related expertise. Witten gets involved. The role of higher education in society underwent radical changes in recent years. Research and teaching are still core activities at universities. But today we expect more. Civic engagement as the “third mission” in addition to research and student education has always been part of UW/H identity. At the founding ceremony of Witten/Herdecke University, Alfred Herrhausen spoke of “esprit engagé, a dedicated spirit to be developed and employed for the fostering of our society”. This spirit is an essential part of our philosophy and attaches equal importance to social responsibility, student education and generation of innovative research results. Right from the start, Witten/Herdecke University assumed social responsibility in many forms and on various levels. Witten/Herdecke University is in a continuous lively exchange with the community: with Witten’s citizens, the local and regional business world, social and cultural institutions, even international organizations, corporations, and foundations. In view of our tender age and a comparably small number of 1.300 enrolled students and 400 staff, we have produced an impressive number of social, cultural, commercial and non-profit initiatives. Witten works. Despite Bologna reforms, increasing economic constraints for universities and new degree programs for formerly non-academic professions, Witten/Herdecke University still offers the freedom of studies that are theory-based and close to practice, ethical and aesthetic, speedy or relaxed, dissident and unconditional, interdisciplinary and undisciplined. And if Harvard University President Drew G. Faust is right in her belief that university culture is essentially undisciplined and that this should be the starting point for future universities, then we seem well-positioned at UW/H. Accordingly, Witten/Herdecke University understands itself as an unconditionally undisciplined university in the sense proclaimed by Drew and Derrida, and as a place of critical thinking. Witten makes a difference, Witten works: in research, teaching and in society. In – and at the interfaces of – health, economics, and culture.

Zeppelin University

Germany Friedrichshafen October 2018

University Bridging Business, Culture, and Politics Why ZU? The major ques­tions that we are fac­ing - both at pre­sent and in the fu­ture - are too com­plex and in­ter­linked to allow for a uni­di­men­sional an­swer. The in­creas­ing so­cial, po­lit­i­cal, eco­nomic, cul­tural, eco­log­i­cal, and me­dial in­ter­link­ing of our world re­quires a place of com­mon dis­course. And the uni­ver­sity is this place. It has a spe­cial func­tion in the 21st cen­tury: LakeCampus at… [+] Seemooser Horn, located right on the shores of Lake Constance. It has to be a place where every ques­tion is al­lowed. It has to be a place of free­dom and a place of per­sonal de­vel­op­ment. It has to be a place of in­tel­lec­tual dis­course that brings schol­ars, stu­dents, and so­ci­ety to­gether. It has to be an ac­tive part of so­ci­ety, an im­pact on so­ci­ety, and con­tribute to solv­ing so­cial and so­ci­etal ques­tions. It has to be in­ter­dis­ci­pli­nary, yet at the same time rooted in aca­d­e­mic dis­ci­plines. This is ex­actly the rea­son why Zep­pelin Uni­ver­sity was founded - and de­lib­er­ately as a foun­da­tion uni­ver­sity. It sets it­self apart as - since its found­ing in 2003 - in­ter­dis­ci­pli­nar­ity has been en­graved into its DNA. Think­ing in a prob­lem- and so­lu­tion-ori­ented way be­tween busi­ness, cul­ture, and pol­i­tics, and not just being stuck in so­cial thought pat­terns and aca­d­e­mic dis­ci­plines opens your per­spec­tive on so­cially rel­e­vant so­lu­tions. This is the ap­proach that de­fines us here at ZU. To­gether we start out to think be­yond bor­ders. It is a great priv­i­lege to shape this unique ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tion to­gether with other par­ties. Stu­dents, schol­ars, the ad­min­is­tra­tive staff, and our spon­sors and part­ners all act in con­cert and in open ex­change to fill this idea of our uni­ver­sity with life. The role model for our ac­tions is Fer­di­nand Graf von Zep­pelin, after whom we are named. He was a pi­o­neer of avi­a­tion. With his strong will, he held on to his idea of con­quer­ing the skies - even though he faced set­backs. He be­lieved in him­self and in his vi­sion. And he reached his aim:"You only have to want it and be­lieve in it, and then it will suc­ceed." For us, this is more than just a nice-sound­ing sen­tence. It is the maxim that we act on. It is our main task to offer stu­dents, schol­ars, and mem­bers of staff the unique chance to de­velop their skills in such a way that they are able to reach their own goals and to find so­lu­tions to the chal­lenges of our times. This is the ori­en­ta­tion of all struc­tures and processes of ZU: in­ter­dis­ci­pli­nary, in an in­spir­ing com­mu­nity, with a lot of room for per­sonal de­vel­op­ment, and a great pi­o­neer­ing spirit. Whether we will be able to an­swer all ques­tions of today and to­mor­row - this is some­thing we are not sure of. Yet, we are sure that we want to try. And if we only want this strongly enough, it will suc­ceed. [-]
