Anti-discrimination and diversity

The University of Bremen strives to align teaching and learning methods, counseling and support services as well as staffing and teams in all status groups in such a way that they reflect the diversity of society and offer the right framework conditions for successful individual participation – irrespective of gender, ethnicity, impairment(s), social background, sexual orientation, world view, age or family commitments.

Various offices and interest groups work in this field. Our main focuses are:

• Accompaniment and initiation of processes for breaking down structural barriers

• Formulation of recommendations for increasing equal opportunity

• Development and implementation strategies to promote the diversity of people and staff at the university

In the knowledge that that in hierarchical structures discrimination can never be completely prevented, but that its emergence as well as its continuation can be critically reflected on, our aim is the realization of a discrimination and barrier-poor environment. At the same time, we see diversity as a prerequisite as well as the basis for quality and innovation in teaching and research.


We are active in the areas of consulting, process development and support as well as networking. Our activities include the design and implementation of various programs, continuing education programs as well as formats of empowerment for specific target groups. We want to contribute to integrating our thematic area as a cross-sectional task in the University.
