The Rectorate, consisting of the Rector, the Chancellor and four Vice Rectors, governs the university.

The Rectorate sees itself as being uniquely committed to the guiding principle of "creating knowledge networks” – the unbiased, interdisciplinary interaction of researchers and learners.

Based on a broad consensus within the university, the Rectorate has set itself the task of contributing to the further development of the Ruhr-Universität as a modern, high-powered, cosmopolitan university at an internationally competitive level. At the same time, the Rectorate emphasises the special responsibility of the Ruhr-Universität to the region and the people living in it.
