To uphold diversity, LMU systematically strives to achieve its guiding principle: that everyone may enjoy equal opportunities—no matter who they are or where they come from. Students, researchers, staff and scientific community members—ultimately, everyone—are afforded the means to develop their potential and excel. This, we champion, by creating a culture around us that promotes sensitivity to gender and diversity matters, is competent in its approach and unwavering in its pursuit of justice. Diversity is vital for excellence in research and teaching. That’s why the University is committed to a culture in which diversity is acknowledged and appreciated.
Office for Equality and Inclusion
The Office for Equality and Inclusion serves as a centralized function to support a wide range of activities promoting diversity. The team reports directly to the University’s Executive Board and develops concepts that promote equal opportunities and contribute to the development of the potential of all university members. As the central interface, the Office of Equality and Inclusion has an overview of the University's activities regarding many aspects of diversity. The work focuses on the fields of gender equality, family friendliness and other aspects of diversity such as physical and psychological conditions, as well as social and cultural origin.
For LMU, recognizing and appreciating the importance of diversity is close to our heart. That's why, every year, we jump at the chance to showcase our culture of diversity at Diversity Day—an annual day of initiatives and events celebrated nationwide.
