I studied intercultural German studies and history at the University of Bayreuth. After my master's degree, I did my doctorate on the change in meaning of the concept of tolerance in the old Federal Republic. Today I am chancellor of H:G University for Health and sport. How did that happen?

In both cases it is about work, about the effort of a learning process. As such a 'global learner', one is confronted with the permanent task of coming to terms with one's host country, even where there can actually be no consensus due to the different cultural background, of enduring repeated experiences of failure and, despite everything, making a new start . And perhaps the greatest effort is to Humour not to verlieren...

New challenges in Germany

In July 2005 I returned to Germany and was initially in the international Office of the Federal Ministry of Education and research before moving to the Ludwig-Maximilians-University in Munich in 2006. I was in the staff office there Strategy and development as Bologna coordinator responsible for the conversion of the diploma and master’s degreeCourses to the tiered study system.

Today I am chancellor of the H: G College of Health and Sports. The opportunity to work in this position at a university arose through contacts from my many years Network, which I had systematically built up.
