Our Equal Opportunities and LGBTQIA+ Contact Center supports and advises all students at RWTH Aachen University in all matters concerning equality. We particularly focus on preventing sexual violence and harassment and providing advice to the victims of such conduct. In doing so, we wish to help others to raise awareness of and reflect upon their own conduct.

What’s more, we have taken it upon ourselves to actively promote equal opportunity measures that aim to work against disadvantages and discrimination due to religion, ethnic or social origin or due to disability. By creating a positive environment for the LGBTQIA+ students, we seek to protect them better from discrimination and break down any inequalities that may exist.

To achieve this, a study and work environment must be created that is oriented towards equality, that is free from discrimination and that is LGBTQIA+ friendly. The advice that our Contact Center can provide concerns any and all forms of disadvantage and discrimination due to gender or sexual identity that may also be outside the boundaries of the binary gender spectrum.

Have you experienced discrimination or racism during your course of study or have you noticed such occurrences taking place in the university environment? Have you been the victim of LGBTQIA+ discrimination or do you see yourself as a Significant Other, Friends, Family and Allies, SOFFA for short? Do you have any ideas that may help us achieve our goals? If so, do not hesitate to contact us!
