Sexualised Discrimination

Goethe University takes a firm stand against all forms of sexualised discrimination and violence.
We encourage and ask those affected by sexualised discrimination and violence, as well as witnesses and confidants, to report incidents and to make use of the support and counselling offered within and outside the university.

Information on courses of action in response to sexualised discrimination, among others, can also be found on the website of the laut*stark sexualisierter Gewalt und Diskriminierung entgegentreten campaign.


The following contact persons advise those affected by sexualised discrimination and violence and can arrange referrals to counselling and support services.
They also help the university to implement preventive measures against sexualised violence. Counselling is confidential and can also be anonymous if preferred.

Faculty Equal Opportunities Officers

In some faculties, the respective Equal Opportunities Officers or Counsellors offer a first, low-threshold point of contact and advice for those affected. The current list of Equal Opportunities Officers and Counsellors can be found here.

We also refer victims to external counselling facilities that specialise in the topic of sexual harassment.

Attention: In case of acute threat, please contact the police: 110!
