Anti-Discrimination Prevention and Counseling Office

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.

The Antidiscrimination Prevention and Counselling Office is member of the nationwide bukof-commissions    (federal conference of equal opportunities commissioners at universities) “sexualized discrimination and violence” and “queer* gender equality policy at universities” as well as the nationwide networks "Antidiscrimination at Universities" and "Diversity at Universities".

Confidential consultation

If you have experienced or observed discrimination in university contexts, you are welcome to contact us. Counseling sessions are confidential and can be anonymous if you wish. No further steps will be taken without your consent. Consultations can take place in presence (subject to and in compliance with hygienic regulations), via videoconference or by telephone. Please simply make an appointment by e-mail:

The Anti-Discrimination Prevention and Counseling Center is primarily responsible for persons who do not have an employment contract with the university and belong to the following member groups:

  • Students
  • Exchange students
  • Doctoral students
  • Students and fellow students of the Landesstudienkolleg
  • Doctoral candidates
  • Habilitation candidates
  • Guest & second students
  • Scholarship holders
  • Guests

In addition, the Anti-Discrimination Prevention and Counseling Center is the primary point of contact for trans*, inter*, and non-binary individuals who experience discrimination in university contexts due to their gender identity - regardless of your membership group or employment contract with the university.

At the University of Halle there are several places where affected persons can get confidential advice and support. You can find an overview here.

Where to find us

You will find the Prevention and Counseling Center Against Discrimination in the immediate vicinity of Universitätsplatz in Dachritzstraße 12 on the top floor (3rd floor). Since September 2021, the office is no longer located in room 329 but in room 019. You can get to it if you turn left immediately coming from the staircase and turn left again at the end of the hallway.

The building has an elevator and barrier-free restrooms on the 1st and 2nd floors. There is an all-gender restroom on the 2nd floor. There are two stairs to negotiate in the hallway on the way to Room 019. If this is a barrier for you, an alternative room can be found for consultations.

In the podcast "hastuGehört" of the student newspaper hastuzeit, student Hermine Vulturius spoke with Sabine Wöller in November 2020 about her work at the University of Halle and the topic of sexualized discrimination in the university context. The 40-minute conversation will cover the following questions, among others: What does the Prevention Office actually do? What is sexual harassment? Where does it start? What can happen at universities? What would the perfect university look like? How does the University of Halle protect and support its students and employees? How can you support affected friends? What is the situation of trans* people? Where can you get more information?
