The University of Jena has several interest groups. The Diversity Office is one of them. We are committed to make sure that all members and affiliates of the University are able to pursue their work duties, scholarly activities, or studies on an equal basis, regardless of ethnic background, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion or belief, disability, age, chronic or mental illness, family responsibilities, or socioeconomic background. Our aim is to raise awareness of diversity-related issues and special needs, and to break down barriers and disadvantages in order to ensure equal opportunities and non-discriminatory coexistence.

If you experience disadvantage or discrimination, please contact us.

We can provide you with advice and information on the following topics:

  • Anti-discrimination counseling
  • Identifying discrimination
  • Possibilities of action in the case of discrimination
  • Further information and advice

If you have questions or need advice, you can contact us at any time per email or by telephone.
