The Eberhard Karls University of Tübingen is a university of the state of Baden-Württemberg in Tübingen . It was founded in 1477 at the instigation of Count Eberhard im Bart , making it one of the oldest universities in Europe and also bearing the first name of Duke Karl Eugen from Württemberg . It offers the range of subjects of a full university .
The university has a long tradition and enjoys a high academic reputation nationally and internationally, especially in the fields of theology, medicine, law as well as economics and social sciences . To date (as of November 12, 2019) there are a total of 11 Nobel Prize winners , 4 Humboldt Professorships and 15 Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Prize winners at or with connections to the University of Tübingen.
In June 2012, the university received the excellence status as part of the third German university excellence initiative, which was extended in 2019 as part of the excellence strategy. This makes it one of the eleven universities of excellence in Germany. Today it is divided into seven faculties of natural , social and human sciences with around 30 fields of study . Around 27,196 students are enrolled in the 2019/2020 winter semester. Life in the about 30 kilometers south of Stuttgart nearby university town is dominated by students who make up around a third of the population.
University founded in the 15th century
Mechthild von der Pfalz , Eberhard's mother and Archduchess of Austria, played a key role in the founding . Mechthild, who had resided in nearby Rottenburg since 1463 , had the Sindelfingen Monastery relocated to Tübingen, which was then the largest and most important city in the southern part of Württemberg. After this was approved by Pope Sixtus IV in 1476 , the monastery could become the starting point for the even more ambitious plans. Mechthild, who had already played a key role in the founding of the Freiburg University , was able to win over her son Eberhard for the project to found a university in Tübingen. Eberhard's confidante Johannes Nauclerus , who became the university's first rector and later long-term chancellor , also played a major role in the founding of the university. The motto “Attempto!” (Latin for “I dare!”) Of the university's founder Eberhard is the motto of the university to this day.
After the founding of the university was publicly announced on March 11, 1477, two large half-timbered buildings (Münzgasse 22–26) were erected not far from the Neckar within a very short time, so that lectures could already begin in October 1477. The further development of the university was pushed ahead rapidly in the following years, so that in 1482 all university buildings were completed. Therefore, moving the university to Stuttgart was no longer an option when Stuttgart became the new state capital and residence of Eberhard in 1482 in the course of the reunification of Württemberg (see Münsinger Treaty ) .
The university received its current name in 1769 from the Württemberg Duke Karl Eugen , who added his name to that of the founder, Count Eberhard im Bart . He installed himself in 1767 as "Rector perpetuus" and held the office of rector until his death in 1793. Nevertheless, with the establishment of the Hohen Karlsschule in Stuttgart, he had brought about one of the greatest existential crises of the University of Tübingen.
In 1805 the first university clinic was established in the Alte Burse , the oldest building of the university still in use, built in 1478 . In addition to the four founding faculties, a Catholic theological faculty and a political economy faculty were founded in 1817 . In 1863 the Eberhard Karls University received the first independent natural science faculty in Germany.
At the 450th anniversary celebrations, on July 24, 1927 , Hans Ellenbeck gave the address at the monument to the fallen on the Eberhardshöhe. Hermann Emil Kuenzer spoke for the Reich President and the Reich Government . Albrecht Duke of Württemberg and the Bishop of Rottenburg Joannes Baptista Sproll also took part in the festivities . During the torchlight procession , 4,000 students moved from the university to Kastanienallee.
The university played a leading role in efforts to “scientifically” legitimize the politics of the Third Reich. Even before the National Socialist German Workers' Party won the Reichstag elections in March 1933 , there were hardly any Jewish lecturers and only a few Jewish students. Hans Bethe , who later won the Nobel Prize for Physics , was dismissed on April 20, 1933 because of non-Aryan descent, the religious philosopher Traugott Konstantin Oesterreich was given early retirement in 1933 and the mathematician Erich Kamke in 1937; in both cases the wife's non-Aryan descent was probably the reason. At least 1158 people were forcibly sterilized at the university hospital.
In the post-war period in Germany , important scholars were called to Tübingen. Adolf Butenandt , Eduard Spranger , Romano Guardini , Ernst Kretschmer , Helmut Thielicke and others brought the university a high reputation. The philosopher Ernst Bloch served as a role model for many Tübingen students. After his death in 1977, the term "Ernst Bloch University", which is still widespread among students, was created. The corresponding logo shows a clenched fist that can be traced back to a well-known gesture by Bloch - the raised fist as an expression of protest.
At the beginning of 1989 it became known that the anatomical institute continued to use specimens from victims of the Nazi era. These were on the city cemetery Tübingen , near the Anatomical Institute at the cemetery X buried. A memorial plaque was put up.
In the meantime, the university was divided into 14 faculties, which were merged again into seven interdisciplinary faculties in 2010. The logo of the university has been the palm tree designed by HAP Grieshaber on the occasion of the 500th university anniversary in 1977 with the motto Attempto! The "Eberhard-Karls-Universität" has written without hyphens ever since. In 2005 the university initiated the university region of Tübingen-Hohenheim . In 2010 she was a founding member of the Matariki University Network .
Equality at the University
The fact that around 60 percent of the students enrolled in Tübingen are women is a rather recent development. In 1881 a guest student from the USA was allowed to attend a lecture for the first time, but through the open door from an adjoining room. The first female student, albeit “extraordinarily enrolled”, was Maria Countess von Linden from 1892 to 1895 . It was not until 1904 that women were granted the right to “regular matriculation”.
After the equality policy had been laid down in the University Framework Act, the Senate's first equality commission was elected in 1986, and issues of equality have been represented by an equality officer since 1989.
Rectors of the University
The first post-war rector was elected on May 19, 1945. The Eberhard Karls University was the first in Germany to open teaching on October 15, 1945.
The Chancellor was a representative of the Pope until the Reformation and of the Lutheran Duke of Württemberg since 1561. From 1561 to 1817 the Chancellor also represented the first theological ordinariate. Nominally, the Chancellery was under the office of the Rector . The Chancellor oversaw the university and monitored teaching operations and compliance with censorship regulations.

As part of the German Excellence Initiative , the university successfully asserted itself in June 2012 with its future concept “Research - Relevance - Responsibility”, the graduate school LEAD (Learning, Educational Achievement, and Life Course Development) and the Excellence Cluster Center for Integrative Neurosciences (CIN). Due to this success, the university has considerable additional funding available until 2017. Since June 2012, Eberhard Karls University has been able to call itself an elite German university , and in 2019 it was extended as one of a total of eleven German universities. With three successful clusters of excellence that were approved by the Excellence Initiative 2018, Tübingen is also one of the three most research-intensive universities in Germany and the most research-intensive university in Baden-Württemberg.
According to The Times Higher Education Supplement , Tübingen was one of the 89 best universities in the world in 2019. For example, the British magazine The Economist describes Tübingen as “home to a famous university”. The University of Tübingen is regularly among the top ten universities in Germany.
Some of the world's most influential Protestant and Catholic theologians of the 20th century were trained in Tübingen. The university therefore enjoys an excellent reputation, particularly in the fields of theology and philosophy of religion . In the current QS ranking, Tübingen ranks sixth worldwide in this specialist area.
The same applies to the Law Faculty, where numerous well-known legal scholars and judges of the Federal Constitutional Court , including Dieter Medicus , Klaus Hopt , Mathias Habersack , Kristian Kühl , Harm Peter Westermann , Rolf Stürner , Ferdinand Kirchhof , Evelyn Haas , Martin Nettesheim , Wolfgang Graf Vitzthum , Michael Eichberger , Thomas Oppermann and the former Federal President Roman Herzog , have taught or still teach. While the law faculty of the University of Tübingen is regularly named as one of the best universities in Germany in terms of research reputation, the faculty belongs to the bottom group in terms of study conditions. The failure rate in the state examination has been above average for years compared to the other law faculties in Baden-Württemberg; at the same time, the university's specialty examination in Tübingen is given the most severe marks compared to the other law faculties in Baden-Württemberg. The University of Tübingen was placed fourth in Germany in the ranking of Wirtschaftswoche 2018 in law, right after Heidelberg University .
The University of Tübingen is also renowned in economics and social sciences. At the Institute for Sociology founded by Ralf Dahrendorf , with Friedrich Tenbruck and Christoph Deutschmann , specializations in cultural and economic sociology have developed , with Jörg Strübing also in qualitative social research . In addition, the economics department traditionally has strengths in economic history , macroeconomics and monetary policy . Claudia Buch , Jürgen Stark , Joachim Starbatty , Helmut Haussmann and the former Federal President and IMF Director Horst Köhler are associated with the faculty .
The University of Tübingen is also the only German-speaking university at which "strategic communication" rhetoric is taught as a separate subject. The first chair holder was the former president of the German PEN center and president of the Berlin Academy of the Arts , Walter Jens .
