"By naming itself after Carl von Ossietzky, the University of Oldenburg underlined science's responsibility towards society and the role of science in public discourse. This commitment remains vital to the university's identity today. The University of Oldenburg is a young university which since its founding in 1973 has contributed to the economic and cultural advancement of Germany's Northwest region. Strengthening the region as a centre of science and research is also the declared aim of its close cooperation with the University of Bremen. 

The university has set itself the goal of combining and enhancing scientific excellence and first-rate teaching for the coming years. The foundation has already been laid, with internationally visible, interdisciplinary research, its targeted promotion of young researchers and its complete conversion to Bachelor and Master degrees" (
