Diversity

UR Diversity Portal


With the diversity portal www.go.ur.de/diversity the Vice President for Internationalization and Diversity, Prof. Dr. Ursula Regener, would like to increase the visibility of all contact persons, events and measures including research and teaching at the University of Regensburg in this broad topic area.
The portal was launched on the 8th German Diversity Day on 26.05.2020. At its activation, the portal was (almost) empty. The aim was and still is that all members of the UR can successively fill it with announcements and reports, but also with offers in research and teaching.


If you would like your offer to appear in the diversity portal with a link to your homepage, please send us an e-mail to antidiskriminierung@ur.de



Anti-discrimination point

Since 01.04.2020 Prof. Dr. Ursula Regener is the first Vice President for Internationalization and Diversity.
