Martin-Luther-University Halle-Wittenberg attaches great importance to non-discriminatory and non-violent interaction, equal and trustworthy collaboration as well as good working and study conditions. Hence, it established a directive for the prevention of discrimination, (sexual) harassment and violence and created a contact office.

Since 2018 the Discrimination and Sexual Harassment Prevention Office has been actively supporting the implementation of this directive and was made permanent in 2021 as the Antidiscrimination Prevention and Counseling Office.

Its activities include:

  • Providing information on possible courses of action in discrimination cases
  • Analysis of the need for action as well as further development and establishment of procedures in discrimination cases
  • Raising awareness of discrimination issues through further training and public relations work
  • Confidential consultation and support of affected persons
  • Intra- and extra-university networking in the field of anti-discrimination


The Prevention and Counseling Center is part of MLU's Staff Unit for Diversity and Equal Opportunity.
