Our mission at the Department of Geography and Regional Research is to advance cutting-edge, creative and globally competitive research, which defines our discipline and has positive impacts on society and to translate this research into excellent teaching. This will empower our students to become critical and responsible graduates, teachers in Geography and Economic Education and global citizens. We strongly believe that Geography with its focus on space-time relationships and dynamics is centrally relevant for tackling the grand societal challenges that we are currently facing. Since the establishment of our department in 1885, we have nurtured the plurality and diversity of concepts and methods and fostered inter- and transdisciplinary cooperation, which are necessary to address the challenges of the 21st century. We aim to provide an inclusive, collegial and inspiring environment that enables all members of the department to unlock their potential and contribute to our mission.
