As a simple "man-in-the-street" I want a University that takes the responsibility for knowing an fully understanding, that what it has to offer in the way of knowledge and skills, will be a benefit to a great many others. A University that invests it's energy and abilities into helping to change and improve our society. And because it takes this responsibility so seriously, it actively seeks contact with a wide range of social groups and establishes itself as a forum for ideas.

Where intellectuals, entrepreneurs, politicians and others can meet to discuss and exchange what they know. I imagine this commitment of the Karlshochschule, its faculty and student body has now boundaries and has a positive effect on a world way beyond Karlsruhe.
