The Project

Structure, tasks and objectives

The GSP consists of two project officers and a team of volunteers. The project officers are elected each year by the members of the student parliament to represent the student body in equal opportunity issues and to represent it towards the university. In addition, the GSP monitors and advises the AStA on equality issues.

Awareness raising

In order to keep the student body informed about our projects, but also to sensitize them to equality issues, we regularly post on Facebook and Instagram through our social media channels. In addition, our events aim to inform, reflect and encourage students to discuss equality issues.

Representation towards the university

The GSP aims to promote internal university discussion of equality issues beyond the work of the Equal Opportunities Office (GSB). The GSP aims to uncover and develop equality-related deficiencies at RWTH such as structural discrimination and to find solutions for these deficiencies, from which the university can then initiate measures to eliminate them.

What does equality mean?

Equality is understood to mean measures which aim to ensure that all people have the same opportunities to develop individually and to be respected.

This is regardless of their gender, origin, religious affiliation, disability or any other characteristic.
