Equal Opportunities Representation

It is the task of the equal opportunities representation to support the university and its various committees in enforcing genuine equality of opportunity for both men and women.

The Higher Education Act of Rhineland-Palatinate states:

  • The universities shall promote the genuine enforcement of equality of opportunity for both men and women and work towards the abolition of any existing inequalities. (§ 2 para.2)
  • The universities shall promote the reconciliation of family life with study, pursuing a career and gaining qualifications. (§ 2 para.4)
  • Gender mainstreaming and the advancement of women shall be part of the quality assurance system. (§ 2 para.2)

The following equal opportunities representations are part of the University of Koblenz-Landau:
