The University of Mannheim is one of the most prestigious universities in Germany and it is no coincidence that it occupies top positions in German and international rankings. However, academic excellence must be proven every day. Thus, it takes a lot of freedom, including financial freedom, to make the most of the potential of research and teaching and make a lasting contribution to society with the results. This exceeds the available means of the Land of Baden-Württemberg, particularly regarding internationality, digitalization of teaching and future challenges. In order to remain at the forefront nationally and internationally as “your” university, it is essential to have greater financial freedom. Therefore, the University of Mannheim Foundation was established. It was founded in 2005 as a result of the commitment of the Freunde Universität Mannheim e.V. and the alumni association ABSOLVENTUM MANNHEIM.
