Diversity as a fact, inclusion as an act.

Diversity is important to us - it is an integral part of our university's profile and is therefore also present on campus every day. We see diversity as an opportunity. We can benefit together from an open and constructive approach to diversity, individuality and plurality. Inclusion is a joint task for us as a university. We can all make a contribution to this. But there is also support - from the Diversity Advisory Board and the Diversity Officer.
