The CDU chairman in the science committee Matthias Reuber criticized: "The structural situation of buildings at the universities in the state is also poor in many places in Rhineland-Palatinate." This discourages students and has far-reaching consequences: "Rhineland-Palatinate universities are less and less often chosen as a place to study, and we are experiencing a heavy emigration after the bachelor's degree." Those who lose too many students will no longer be able to fill professorships and mid-level academic positions.
