As a university of applied sciences for technology, computing and media, Ulm University of Applied Sciences is active in subjects traditionally studied by a high proportion of men.It is our goal to get girls and women as enthusiastic about technical careers as we currently manage to with boys and men. To achieve this, we have to and want to make a considerable effort.
This is not about giving women preferential treatment, but offering everyone the same opportunities for a successful degree course and working life at our university of applied sciences.In the interests of helping to represent those who are underrepresented at Ulm University of Applied Sciences, we have put together a team of equality and equal opportunities representatives. They are available to talk to for all members of Ulm University of Applied Sciences.So that students with disabilities or chronic illnesses are not disadvantaged in their studies, Ulm University of Applied Sciences has set up the office of Representative for Students with Disabilities (Amt des Beauftragten für Studierende mit Behinderungen).
The team in alphabetical order:
Equal Opportunities and Equality
Officially, the Equal Opportunities Team is responsible for non-academic staff at the University of Applied Sciences (office workers, laboratory staff, technical services etc.), and the Equality Team looks after students, academic staff and professors.But we are all happy to listen to everyone's questions and problems, and we cooperate closely together. Hopefully, in this way, we can act quickly and unbureaucratically.If you would like to find out more about the subject 'Equality', you can find a few pointers in the Equality literature list.
