A conversation with the President of the Board of the University and the President of UZH
“UZH is part of society at large”
We sat down with Silvia Steiner, Director of Education for the Canton of Zurich, and Michael Schaepman, President of UZH, to discuss the role of the university in the educational system, innovative capacity, international relations, academic freedom and social responsibility.
UZH empowers people to sustainably shape their future.
UZH launched the Future of Teaching at UZH initiative and is promoting research projects that have a lasting impact. By introducing a new working model and establishing a leadership and governance academy, we are paving the way for everyone at UZH to develop the working culture at our university.
Our teaching staff are exploring innovative ideas for university teaching, while our researchers are finding new paths toward sustainable co-existence. Our portraits show how UZH staff are handling and shaping the ever-changing world of work.
After years of strong growth, the number of students at UZH leveled out in 2022, while the number of people employed at UZH saw a slight increase. The university’s income statement recorded an annual profit of CHF 3.5 million. An overview of UZH’s facts and figures for the 2022 reporting year.
