Would you like individual support, exchange and interaction with students of the same discipline?
Diversity Mentoring offers students of all disciplines, who are confronted with barriers in their studies for various reasons, better orientation and support in their everyday university life.
The contents of the Diversity Mentoring are individually coordinated – depending on the needs of the mentees and the knowledge of the mentors, the focus can be on orientation at the university, on joint considerations for structuring everyday student life or on a completely different topic.
Content and procedure
For the time being, the mentees will be accompanied for the period of one semester.The project consists of a joint supporting program of the entire group as well as career-relevant workshops and (monthly) meetings of all participants of the Diversity Mentoring – the place and time can be determined individually.
