    2. Diversity in and through research and teaching

    3. Inclusivity

    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.
