We are also involved in recruitment procedures and promotions. Please contact us if you would like us to be present at the interview.
The university's equal opportunities plan is developed jointly with the equal opportunities officers and the equality officers.

We are a member of the working group of the Equal Opportunities Representatives of the Universities of Education, Universities of Applied Sciences and the Dual University in Baden-Württemberg.


All enquiries are treated confidentially; please feel free to make an appointment directly or by email.

Equal Opportunities Officer

The goal is to achieve real equality between women and men in the public service and, in particular, to bring more women into management positions.

The Equal Opportunities Officer ("Beauftragte für Chancengleichheit", BfC) and her deputy monitor the implementation of and compliance with the Equal Opportunities Act and support the head of department in its implementation. They are involved in recruitment processes and have the right to participate in all application and staff selection interviews.
