Anti-Discrimination Prevention and Counseling Office

About us

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".

  • Students
  • Exchange students
  • Doctoral students
  • Students and fellow students of the Landesstudienkolleg
  • Doctoral candidates
  • Habilitation candidates

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.
