As a scientific institution mirroring the society it is part of, the University of Bremen accepts responsibility to configure its tructures and institutional conduct in accordance with the criterion of social diversity.
Guiding Principles: 1. University within society
2. Diversity in and through research and teaching
Diversity is a structural principle of the University. As a factor of innovation and creativity, it is reflected in the diversity of subject and knowledge cultures, their methods, forms of teaching and learning, as well as in the contents of research and education.
The diversity approach addresses all members of the University’s community of students, faculty and staff across all
its areas (education, research, administration). It encompasses both “diversity mainstreaming” as well as the promotion of specific target groups.
4. Competence in dealing with diversity
In the context of a global knowledge society, the University of
Bremen considers competence in addressing diversity issues to be a major educational goal.
5. Diversity as a factor and general condition of academic success and education
The University of Bremen sees achieving academic success as a task to be shared in equal measure by the educational institution and its students. It is therefore aware of its institutional responsibility to create the requisite equitable framework conditions to promote the academic success of each individual student.
6. Empowerment and participation
Taking into account different individual requirements and personal capabilities, all members of the University are given optimal support with the aim of promoting genuine participation and integration in all areas of University life.
All members of the University of Bremen are called upon to act against vilification and discrimination in all their dimensions and to actively take steps to prevent them taking place.
