The University of Kassel is a university where openness, initiative, interdisciplinary and unconventional thinking are desired and encouraged. Developing, testing and implementing ideas is the claim here - even if they are not yet in the mainstream.
We have an exceptionally broad profile with the competence fields of nature, technology, culture and society. It is our aspiration to contribute to the sustainable development of society - through relevant and future-oriented research as well as through the up-to-date education of graduates and knowledge transfer to the region.
The university lives from the people who research and teach, work and study here. Commitment and initiative are welcome and supported. At the same time, the university is embedded in a network of partners and friends. It sees itself as part of an international scientific community, but maintains its roots in the region.
