Anti-discrimination Services

Stralsund University of Applied Sciences is committed to provide a learn and work environment free from discrimination. Our anti-discrimination work and services contribute towards an open and tolerant campus culture, one that is characterized by mutual trust and respect.

Diversity, anti-discrimination and equal opportunities are issues relevant in most areas of university life and their realization requires a broad awareness as well as wide participation across all university bodies. The administrative department of anti-discrimination offers advice and support to departments, professors, colleagues and students.

Anti-discrimination Work

Anti-discrimination work aims to bring positive changes on different levels.

On an individual level, anti-discrimination means providing support and counseling services as well as empowering those affected by structural inequality.

On an institutional or organizational level, anti-discrimination aims to realize equal opportunities, secure equal participation and to protect and prevent members from being discriminiated against.

On a societal level, a culture of anti-discrimination can bring about meaningful change in various areas, e.g. law, politics, history or media.
