Hochschule Niederrhein. Your way.

Diversity at The Hochschule Niederrhein

"We see diversity as a strength and an opportunity; we embrace it, respect it and promote it" - this is how our university development plan puts it.

Diversity charter

We live and value diversity at our university. We also express this in our commitment to the Diversity Charter .

We raise awareness of the diversity of students and employees and we develop measures to meet their requirements for university life.

Diversity audit "Shaping diversity

As part of the Stifterverband's diversity audit "Vielfalt gestalten" (Shaping Diversity ), we have developed a variety of ways to make diverse groups of people and their interests visible and support them in everyday university life. We are now successively implementing these tools and measures.

Support program "Inclusive university

We are involved in the state program "Inclusive University" to enable students with disabilities or chronic illnesses to participate equally in university life. This involves, for example, digital accessibility or the barrier-free equipment of classrooms.
