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.
