Summary/Abstract: The festive inauguration of the German University in Chernivtsi was held on 4 October 1875, after 100 years from Austria’s annexation of Bukovina. This was the fifth German University in Austria (besides the universities in Vienna, Prague, Graz and Innsbruck). This institution of high education in Chernivtsi was meant to dissipate German language, culture and science in this part of the empire. The first rector of the University of Chernivtsi was the Romanian Constantin Tomasciuc. It is worth mentioning that the university rectors and deans were elected with no ethnic or confessional restrictions. From its beginnings up to 1912, 44 rectors have been elected, out of which 22 were Germans, and 11 were Romanians, 9 Jews and 2 Ukrainians.
