Equal Opportunity Department

The Viadrina sees individuality and diversity as an enrichment for all members at the university.

The Equal Opportunity Department stands up for equal treatment among all students and employees by respecting their different situations and life plans. Our goal is to promote a gender and diversity sensitive environment.

For this purpose, we develop new strategies, various offers, programs and measures. In addition, we refer to counselling points and provide contact persons.

Our department consists of the following divisions
