The University as a Place of Diversity and Tolerance

The University of Mannheim promotes social diversity and equal opportunities. It is an open place for learning, teaching and working. Respectful, appreciative interactions with one another and tolerance for diversity are core values of the university.

Since December 2021, the University of Mannheim has been taking part in the diversity audit process offered by the Stifterverband, the German business community's innovation agency for the country’s research system. In the context of the “Vielfalt gestalten” (shaping diversity) audit, the university and its members are seeking approaches to (further) develop and implement the diversity strategy.

From 17 to 20 April, the University of Mannheim is focusing on a wide variety of diversity aspects with information and training offerings during the Diversity Study Week. Students, employees and interested people from outside the university are invited to attend workshops, lectures and discussion groups on different topics, such as gender equality, intercultural communication, social background and migration.
