As a top ranking leader, Heinrich Schmidinger has worked tirelessly and successfully for the fundamental transformation of the Paris Lodron University into a modern educational and research institution that meets the highest national and international standards , said Landeshauptmann Wilfried Haslauer in his ceremonial address on 28 July in Salzburg.

Im Februar 1993 übernahm Schmidinger den Lehrstuhl für Christliche Philosophie an der Theologischen Fakultät der Paris Lodron Universität, als deren Dekan er 1995 bis 1999 fungierte. Als solcher war er zugleich Vorsitzender der Österreichischen Dekanekonferenz.

Parallel zu seiner Forschungsund Lehrtätigkeit führte ihn sein Weg in die Funktion des Vizerektors für Ressourcen und ab 2001 in die Funktion des Rektors der Paris Lodron Universität Salzburg.

Als Lehrer, Forscher, Autor, Kommunikator und zuletzt auch als Universitäts-Manager weithin anerkannt, führte dies 2011 zu seiner Präsidentschaft über die Österreichische Universitätenkonferenz , so Haslauer. Diese Zeit war und ist von starken Veränderungen der gesamten Universitätslandschaft geprägt. Heutzutage gilt es, einen Universitätsbetrieb gleich einem Unternehmen zu führen.
