The Johannes-Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU) values the cultural, social and individual diversity of its members. Our diversity strategy focuses on creating equal opportunities, fighting discrimination and abolishing exclusion mechanisms. Additionally, it aims at actively fostering a diversity-oriented teaching, learning, research and working environment, which includes the acknowledgement and support of different life styles.

Today, society faces challenges such as globalized and ever changing living and working patterns, lack of skilled labor and demographic development. These challenges require a change of culture. Accordingly, we here at JGU regard the heterogeneity among our students and employees as an opportunity. By promoting a diversity-oriented environment, JGU assumes societal responsibility as educational institution and advocates for more educational justice.
