Our primary task is to communicate the strategic goals and services of our alma mater as well as how the University sees itself. We want to attract students, scholars, friends and sponsors, involve it in the city and region and heighten its national and international visibility. To this end, we disseminate clear messages and information about the University across a variety of media and event formats.

We offer target group-specific services for our communication partners inside and outside the University. We work hand in hand on presenting Leipzig both externally and internally, with the aim of creating a uniform University brand to which new facets are continually added. We pay attention to the internal and public impact of what we do and endeavour to act responsibly, carefully, sustainably and transparently.

In our dynamic field of work, we recognise the importance of continuing professional development as well as internal and external networks, especially with other higher education institutions. As a university communications team, we see ourselves as facilitators who provide important overarching transfer services and promote identification with our university.
