Welcome to the Rectorate at the Johannes Kepler University!

Moving a university resolutely toward a bright future: that can only be done together as a team. At the JKU, both academic and general personnel pull together along with university management. The Rectorate, made up of the Rector and five Vice-Rectors, takes on a role as pilot and coordinator.

The Rectorate is responsible for managing the Johannes Kepler University and, most importantly, creating strategic guidelines to put the university on the road to success today and adhere to standards of tomorrow.
