Scientists play a role in defining the context of the ongoing conflict. A working environment in which there is respect for each other and in which there is room for emotion is a prerequisite here. As a university, we want to facilitate a dialogue by providing a safe space for everyone. Freedom of expression is a great asset, but there are also limits. Discrimination, racism or inciting hatred and violence are unacceptable on our campus.
We consider it important to be there for each other as an academic community. The university provides support in several ways. Students in need of support can contact their programme's study advisor. Employees can contact their supervisor. The University Chaplaincy has also opened its doors.
