The Rectorate leads the university and creates its strategic guidelines. These strategic guidelines are laid down in the development plan, the performance agreements with the Federal Government and the agreed targets developed with the faculties/centres and the administrative organisational units. The Rectorate is made up of the Rector and the three vice-rectors. The Rectorate is supported by the Office of the Rectorate.
