Message from the President
Dear alumnae and alumni,
whether you are a former student, researcher, employee, or guest of Freie Universität Berlin – you have actively shaped our university. You are connected to your alma mater through your personal experiences and professional contacts and serve as an informal ambassador for Freie Universität.
It is important to us to stay in touch with you and to foster our connection. To this end, the Alumni Network currently serves more than 22,000 alumni worldwide. I am convinced that you will professionally and personally benefit from this network. It allows you to stay informed about developments at Freie Universität, to keep in touch with fellow alumni, to expand your academic and professional network, and to volunteer and engage with the next generation of students and researchers.
You are invited to share your academic and professional experiences with current students from your field, to mentor doctoral students, or, beyond the Alumni Network, to support research, teaching, and junior scholars at Freie Universität as a member of the Ernst Reuter Association.
Freie Universität is sustained by the people who study, teach, research, and work here: by their outstanding academic work, their social commitment, and their diversity. I hope your personal experience during your time at Freie Universität confirms this and I would like to invite you to shape the future together with us in this spirit.
Prof. Dr. Günter M. Ziegler
President of Freie Universität Berlin
