Bremen University represented with its own float at Bremen Christopher Street Day


For the first time, the University of Bremen was represented with its own float at this year's CSD in Bremen on August 26. The float was planned and organized by students and staff. The motto of the float was "University for Diversity - University of Diversity". The campaign was made possible by the commitment and support of the rectorate and a donation from Sparkasse Bremen - many thanks for this!

Also this year, the university has again "shown the flag" and hoisted the rainbow flag / progressive pride flag on campus around the CSD.

Until September 8, employees and students can pick up A3 posters, postcards and stickers with the further developed rainbow flag daily between 10:00 and 12:00 in the administration building (VWG) at the information desk on the first floor. The VWG is barrier-free accessible via the main entrance and the side entrance.

Digital Accessibility in Teaching & Learning

In general, providing digital teaching is – not just in times during the corona pandemic – a valuable format for diverse, inclusive teaching. Particularly students with special needs can benefit from digital teaching. However, it also poses certain challenges for this target group, which is why we ask you, as teaching staff, to ensure the accessibility of digital teaching, even in this particular situation, despite the high level of stress that you all might be experiencing now. In the following, we are particularly concerned with accessibility for students with hearing or visual impairments, but also, for example, for students with limited mobility (especially with regards to taking notes), impairments due to ADHD, dyslexia, mental illness, or impairments due to medication.
