Encyclopedia > Vice Chancellor of Germany

The Deputy Chancellor or Vice-Chancellor (Vizekanzler) in Germany is often the Minister of Foreign Affairs. It is the second highest position in the government, and is usually held by the leader of the government's principal coalition partner.

The prefix "Vize-" is derived from the Latin "vicis" meaning "in place of".

Vice-Chancellor - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (324 words)
Strictly speaking, he or she is only the deputy to the Chancellor of the university, but the Chancellor is usually a prominent public figure who acts as a ceremonial figurehead only (e.g., the Chancellor of Cambridge University is HRH The Duke of Edinburgh), while the Vice-Chancellor acts as the day-to-day chief executive.
In the United States, a Vice-Chancellor is an assistant to a Chancellor, who is generally the (actual, not merely ceremonial) head of one campus of a large university which has several campuses.
The head of the entire university is the University President (the equivalent of a Commonwealth Vice-Chancellor), the Chancellor is in charge of one campus, and a Vice-Chancellor is one of the chief assistants.
