An appointment with the President of Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg on May 17 - not an everyday occurrence for apl. Prof. Dr. Rainer Kleber, and this particular time for a special honor: his appointment as "Associate Professor" of the Faculty of Economics, or more precisely: the granting of the right to use the same title ("apl. Prof.", or alternatively simply "Prof.") from now on. He has been a private lecturer at FEM for many years, has been active with great success and commitment in research and teaching, has been present at meetings, conferences, in numerous publications, etc. Hence, this honor bestowed upon him is a well-deserved acknowledgement and confirmation of his outstanding academic work over the past years. After being evaluated by an APL commission and two external reviewers, and following resolutions by the Faculty Council and in the Senate, apl. Prof. Rainer Kleber is today only the second faculty member ever to be awarded the title. Congratulations!

A newly assembled leadership team of FEM was established on April 6 through respective resolutions of the Faculty Council. After four years in office, Prof. Andreas Knabe passed the baton to the new Dean, Prof. Abdolkarim Sadrieh, who thanked his predecessor for the truly outstanding work, and his significant contribution to the greater development of the faculty in difficult times, most recently marked by the pandemic. Following the proposal of Mr. Sadrieh, two Vice-Deans were elected: Professors Barbara Schöndube-Pirchegger and Sebastian Eichfelder, who were assigned the duties of Dean of Study Affairs for the next four years. The leadership of the faculty is also complemented by two so-called faculty representatives for research affairs (Prof. Andreas Knabe) and international relations (Prof. Peter Reichling). Congratulations and best wishes to all elected persons for the continued smooth-sailing and navigation of the FEM ship!
To show their solidarity with Ukraine, students of the International Study Programs (ISP) of the Faculty of Economics and Management launched a fundraising campaign. With the slogan "Cookies for Ukraine", students and staff of the university sold homemade cookies and muffins in front of the cafeteria and library. During the show of solidarity, there was also the opportunity to talk to Ukrainian students and also a family who had fled. The children Alica (4) and Kristina (8) painted pictures, which could also be purchased for a donation. In the end, a total of €610 was collected and used to purchase "Welcome Personal-Care Packs" containing dental care products, creams, shampoos, shower gels, hairbrushes and much more. A total of 70 packs could be formally handed over to the Voluntary Agency Magdeburg on April 4 and promptly distributed to newly arriving refugees in the exhibition hall. Furthermore, there was also room to financially support the Ukrainian family mentioned above, and to make a donation to the "Aktionsbündnis Katastrophenhilfe".
A big thank you to all involved!
