The Excellence Initiative makes its mark

Humboldt-Universität reviews its successes and looks ahead

When the Humboldt-Universität’s (HU) institutional strategy won the Excellence Initiative in 2012, there was great euphoria at the HU. We asked ourselves, “What has happened since then? What has the Excellence Initiative changed at the HU? What have the institutional strategy’s funding lines, the faculty reform, graduate schools, clusters of excellence, Integrative Research Institutes (IRI), internationalisation and gender equality programmes set in motion? How have the first two and a half years worked out for the many people involved in the initiative? What goals were important to them, which of these have they achieved and what would they like to accomplish in the time that remains until funding ends in October 2017”?

We received a wide variety of answers. These answers made it clear that the Excellence Initiative was truly a catalyst. It has unleashed new ideas, experiments and processes at every level, including in teaching.

The people we interviewed all agree: Now the process of reform must continue, for the next Excellence Initiative will certainly come.
