Equal Opportunities

We are of course still there for you during the Corona pandemic! In case of problems with mobbing, stalking, sexual harassment, or consulting requests on these topics, you can still reach us via e-mail during office hours. We can then arrange a personal, telephone or video appointment. Obviously, the consultations will take place in compliance with the necessary distance and hygiene regulations. And data security is guaranteed with the university's video conferencing program. Certainly, we will continue to treat everything concerning these topics as confidential.
