About us

Learning and teaching together with research and advanced scientific training are the core tasks of Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz. As the university expresses in its mission statement on the subject of "learning and teaching", all members of the university are committed to ensuring that students not only receive a highly qualified range of courses, but are also able to benefit from good social and cultural conditions as well as transparent structures geared towards academic success.

Learning and Teaching strives to realize this goal. It is divided into the following task areas (units):
