Presidents from the 1975 university reform until today

Since 1975 a president has been appointed head of the University of Würzburg. He thus represents the university and is chairman of the university management, which consists of five vice-presidents and the chancellor.
The President is elected by the University Council. The presidents since 1975 have all come from the faculty of the university - so there has not yet been an external professor who took over the management of the JMU.
