Bielefeld University is committed to value the diversity of persons who work, study, teach and research here and to support their different abilities, talents and competences.
The potential arising from diversity and heterogeneity is regarded as an opportunity to unlock innovative and creative processes in research, teaching, work and study.
To this end, the University would like to create an environment that is free from discriminating structures, behaviour and prejudices. A place in which all members and affiliates of the University in study, science or administration feel appreciated and accepted, independent of gender, nationality, ethnic or social-cultural background, religion, world view, disability or (chronic) illness, age or sexual orientation.
Advisory and information services, training for teaching staff as well as research projects and current publications on the topic of diversity.
Support, advice and initiatives for students and by students: access to study programmes, students with children, Disability Portal, etc.
Information and advisory services and training opportunities for (young) researchers in respect to the issue of diversity in academic careers.
Information, advice and professional development opportunities for staff working in the areas of administration and service relevant to the theme of diversity at the University workplace.
