Equal Opportunities Office
Goethe University's goal is to establish equal opportunities throughout all areas of the university and to change university structures in the sense of a gender- and diversity-sensitive organizational culture. Responsible for the implementation of equal opportunities at the central level is the Equal Opportunities Office with its work areas Equal Opportunities, Family & Dual Career, and Diversity & Antidiscrimination. With the Equal Opportunities Action Plan 2019-2024 (german) and the Offensive "Goethe University = Opportunities" aimed at raising awareness, all organizational units are called upon to create gender-, family- and diversity-sensitive structures and processes in their work areas.

Since these rules have unfortunately often not been observed in recent months, teachers can find important tips here on the communication culture in virtual teaching as well as a template for a code of conduct for students.
