Information from the president of Trier University 7th May 2020

Dear students, colleagues and employees,

As the current discussions on reopening are ongoing, and yesterday provided no mention on the status of the universities, it might be a good time to remember the irony of this political poster: “A country that has such boxers, soccer players, tennis players and race drivers can easily do without its universities.” (Klaus Staeck, 1997)

Wishing you a pleasant day,

Michael Jäckel
