Responsibility is Key

The University of Vechta looks back on a long and eventful history that started in 1830. It has been shaped by political changes, willingness for reform, and various other dynamics. Cosmopolitan, personal, and familial – the university represents its philosophy “Responsibility is Key” and wants to be a source of inspiration for the future. Its self-image is characterised by a close connection to the region, with a focus on internationality, interdisciplinarity and intercultural competence. The close connection of research, academic teaching, and transfer of knowledge in combination with specific key profiles in the fields of teacher training, social and human services, agriculture and food, and cultural studies at the University of Vechta aims to prepare future generations to cope with complex challenges in a globalised world. The University of Vechta especially focuses on transformation processes in rural areas. Digitalisation, internationalisation, sustainability as well as gender and diversity are among its cross-cutting issues. The future-oriented approach to relevant topics in the fields of education, ageing, social and cultural change, business and ethics, agriculture and food, combined with an openness to new and unusual ways of thinking and proceeding, is one of the special characteristics of the University of Vechta. The human being is the centre of all actions. The university particularly commits to the democratic principles of our society and to universal, inalienable, and indivisible human rights.
