Depart­ment for Equal­i­ty and Sustainability

The Equal­i­ty and Sus­tain­abil­i­ty Unit cov­ers two impor­tant areas at once. 

On the one hand, we deal with top­ics relat­ed to equal oppor­tu­ni­ties and diver­si­ty and work close­ly with the Sen­ate Com­mit­tee for Equal­i­ty and Diver­si­ty and the university’s Equal Oppor­tu­ni­ty Offi­cer. We also orga­nize social events, such as a blood dona­tion dri­ve or a DKMS reg­is­tra­tion drive. 

The sec­ond impor­tant area of our unit is the top­ic of sus­tain­abil­i­ty at the uni­ver­si­ty. Through events such as the Health Day, which takes place every semes­ter either at the Son­theim cam­pus or at Bil­dungscam­pus, as well as cloth­ing swaps and bicy­cle cam­paigns and 

ini­ti­at­ing sus­tain­able projects at the uni­ver­si­ty, we try to make stu­dents aware of the top­ic of sus­tain­abil­i­ty and moti­vate them to par­tic­i­pate, as well as to make every­day life at the uni­ver­si­ty more sustainable.

This also includes col­lab­o­ra­tions with Food­shar­ing and Sneep, a Ger­many-wide stu­dent net­work for busi­ness ethics and sustainability.

If you are inter­est­ed in get­ting involved in any of these top­ics, please feel free to email us at. nach­, we are always hap­py to hear about new ideas and com­mit­ted students.
