Diversity & Equality
As a cosmopolitan university, we value and promote the diversity of all members of our university. At the University of Passau, you will therefore find a comprehensive range of advisory services with contact persons on the following topics:
- Diversity and equality
- Family and qualification
- Studying with a disability or chronic illness
- Dealing with discrimination, sexual harassment, stalking or mobbing.
The Diversity and Gender Equality Office is committed to improving equal opportunities at the University of Passau. The unit actively promotes gender equality, diversity on campus and the balance of work/study and family life.
For details, visit the Diversity and Gender Equality website.
The University of Passau is committed to a family-friendly profile in the charter 'Family at the University'. This includes, among other things, the topic of childcare, but also the care of relatives.
Information, advice and numerous offers for your support can be found on the pages of the Family Services Section.
The University of Passau has set itself the goal of realising the concept of an 'inclusive university'. In addition to the gradual improvement of accessibility, the University of Passau is therefore concerned to create the most equal and non-discriminatory qualification conditions possible for young academics with physical and health impairments.
