Studying with disability

Students who are impaired in their studies due to a chronic physical and/or mental illness or disability can find advice and assistance from the Representative for Students with Disabilities and/or Chronic Illnesses.

The counseling is confidential and solution-oriented regarding possible support offers and individual compensatory measures for studies with impairments (especially regarding compensation for disadvantages in the application and admission to studies, in studies and in study and examination performance). All in the sense of a self-determined and successful study with or despite a disabilty!

Sustainability

Sustainability concerns all of us! The creation of a prorectorate and a staff position for sustainability particularly emphasizes the importance of the topic for our university. So it should be comprehensively integrated into research, teaching and administration.

"Team N" (the "N" stands for "Nachhaltigkeit") looks forward to advancing the issue of sustainability at our university together with all of its members."

LGBTQ Department

The LGBTQ Department from students for students welcomes everyone who is marginalized because of their sexual, romantic, and/or gender identity.

Our work is mainly grounded in two different approaches: on one hand, we offer political education work on topics of sexual, romantic and gender diversity from an intersectional perspective– an offer open to anyone who is interested. On the other hand, we host a variety of social events to enhance community building. Visitors who are not (or no longer) students are welcome at our events as well!

We plan and organize scientific talks, seminars, and podcasts on the most relevant scientific topics. In addition, we exchange ideas on promoting inter-institutional scientific exchange, talent development, and appropriate childcare. Furthermore, we encourage and offer measures for a stable balance between work and personal life, career planning, and training workshops.

At the Fair of Opportunities, we will present the results of our WiS poll, a feedback questionnaire targeting all LIMES Insitute members which aims to enhance the Insitute’s future projects and processes and will be a fundamental pillar for our future actions as a WiS committee.
