Protection from Sexual Harassment, Discrimination, and Violence

Sexualized discrimination and violence continue to be a social problem, and the study and work space of the university is no exception. For the protection of their students and staff, the University of Kassel has passed guidelines for protection from sexual harassment, discrimination, and sexual violence.
