Inclusion is an important element of diversity at H-BRS: people with disabilities and chronic illnesses are part of the diverse landscape of our university. It is an important objective of H-BRS to pave way for successful study opportunities of all our students - no matter what personal and physical conditions students bring along. Disabilities and chronic illnesses can be visible or invisible - inclusion means that we are not only aware of diversity, but also see its potential and foster it through appropriate measures and projects.
We at H-BRS want to to introduce the topic of inclusion more strongly into various parts of the univiersity with the help of the "Inclusive University NRW" funding programme, develop additional measures and commit to an inclusion strategy based on the diversity strategy and HEP3.
This page is still under construction. You will be able to find more projects and measures concerning inclusion at H-BRS here soon.
If you have any questions, please contact the Coordinator for Inclusive University, Katrin Maag.
