Help with discrimination, harassment and violence

At the University of Erfurt, the personality of each individual, respect for each person and consideration for their dignity are of central importance. For this reason, no person may be discriminated against within university life at the University of Erfurt on the basis of their gender, ethnic or social origin, age, disability, sexual orientation or identity, religion, ideology or political views. Behaviour which respects the personality of others is valued. Behaviour that injures others is to be avoided.
