On February 24, 2021, at 2:15 p.m., the item on the Senate meeting agenda will be the election of two part-time Vice-Presidents. They will take on the responsibilities for sustainable development, international affairs and university culture within the Rectorate. In view of the regional situation and the general course of the Coronavirus pandemic, the meeting will be held in the form of a video conference. Voting will take place via the university’s BSCW server. The secrecy of the ballot is ensured.

The part-time Vice-Presidents are elected by the Senate from among the University’s full-time professors at the suggestion of the Rector. To reach the required majority, 22 yes votes are required in each case. The University of Freiburg will inform the public about the results of the election on the day of the election by means of a press release, which will also be posted on the University website.

Registration for the livestream via UniAccount

According to the state higher education law, members of the university are entitled to witness the election. Furthermore, the Senate decides at the beginning of the meeting whether the university public will be admitted to other parts of the meeting as well - in particular to the presentation of the candidates. The computer center will set up a livestream to broadcast all parts of the meeting that are open to all members of the university. All interested members of the university can follow the livestream by logging into the online learning platform ILIAS with their UniAccount details, including their password. This can be done from home, for example - a connection to the university network is not required. Members and affiliates of the university who do not have a UniAccount can request access to the livestream from Tamara Ursprung at the computing center by calling 0761/203-4647 or by E-mail by February 23, 2021, 4:30 p.m. at the latest.
