Equal Opportunities for Women

The Women's Representatives

The Women’s Representative of the university heads the Coordinating Office for Equal Opportunities and Family. In particular, she aims to establish equal opportunities for women at the university. It is her duty to pay careful attention so that female academics, teaching staff and students are not disadvantaged.

The Women’s Representative of Universität Regensburg and her deputies are nominated for election by the President and elected by the senate to a four-semester term of office. Full-time arts and science personnel of Universität Regensburg are eligible for the position. The Women’s Representative is an advisory member of the University Management, a voting member of the Extended University Management and the Senate.

The Women’s Representatives of the faculties work towards more equal opportunities and a better compatibility of studies, career and family at their respective faculties. They are elected by the faculty board and are members with vote in the appointments committees of the respective faculty board. In addition, the Women’s Representatives of the faculties take part in two joint meetings each semester. These meetings are an opportunity to exchange information, experience and ideas between the faculties and other advisory services, and for interdisciplinary co-operation, which is absolutely necessary in order to work successfully in the complex area „Equal Opportunities and Family“.


Our objectives, in accordance with the equal opportunity policy of the university, are the following:

  • to enhance the percentage of female professors
  • to provide career and personnel development for new female academics
  • to attract female students in subjects where women are under-represented
  • to improve the compatibility of studies/career and family
  • to increase awareness of gender issues
  • to ensure equal opportunities for women and men
