New diversity and equality counselors have been appointed

To ensure that the English department remains a safe space where everyone can learn and pursue their interests, the department has appointed two staff members as liaison lecturers [Vertrauensdozenten] who function as intermediaries between students, other staff members and counseling services. They represent a working group that is responsible for raising and developing support regarding diversity and equality in the English department.
