Statement of the Rectorate on the war in Ukraine

Author: Bielefeld University

“We are deeply saddened by the news reaching us from Ukraine. It is depressing that another war is taking place on European soil. Our thoughts are with the people – among them many students and scientists. The entire Bielefeld University is under the impression of this terrible event. Many relatives are worried about their family members, cooperation partners and fellow students. At this time, we as a university are also called upon to contribute our competencies – we are convinced that many academics are observing and evaluating the developments from within their disciplines and are making a contribution to ensuring that a well-founded and fact-based social debate is conducted.”
