Representing the faculty within and outside the university

The Dean's Office heads the faculty in accordance with the responsibilities assigned to it under the Hamburg Higher Education Act (HmbHG): it manages the budget allocated to the faculty by the Executive Board and decides on the allocation of positions. It is also responsible for determining the faculty's strategic direction.

The Dean's Office is currently made up of the dean and six vice deans. The vice deans for teaching also head their respective departments.
