Equal opportunities & diversity

The University of Bayreuth views the diversity of its students, teachers, and employees as an asset. We are expressly committed to the goals of: gender equality, inclusion, equal opportunities, and family-friendliness.

The aim of the University of Bayreuth is therefore to identify and eliminate forms of personal and structural discrimination, and thus create a gender- and diversity-friendly university culture. This includes questioning power and hierarchies in University structures.

 Furthermore, it is committed to advancing gender equality in research work, teaching, and studies, and to significantly increasing the proportion of women, especially in areas where women are underrepresented. The University of Bayreuth has set out its goals and strategies for equal opportunities and more diversity in its 2025 Structural & Development Plan.

The Future Equality Concept is based on the Structure and Development Plan, in the preparation of which four future-oriented strategic and sustainable equality policies were developed in cooperation with the University Governing Board: increasing the proportion of women in top academic positions, career and personnel development, especially for young female academics, and attracting female students to subjects in which women are underrepresented.

The path to the goal: The measures of our 2025 Structural & Development Plan
