In Germany, as a modern, cosmopolitan country, people with different lifestyles, different origins and different opinions come together. Society is characterized by great diversity. The THM is proud of its diversity and sees it as an opportunity. It is important to us to organize fair participation in all areas, to promote respectful exchange and to clearly oppose any discrimination.

However, interpersonal conflicts are unavoidable from time to time. In a pluralistic society, the existence of different values ​​creates the potential for conflict.

The BIKO team offers all THM students the opportunity to report incidents of racially motivated discrimination, talk about them and develop suggestions for solutions.
Racially motivated discrimination includes the following discrimination characteristics:
Discrimination based on external characteristics such as skin color or clothing
Discrimination based on ethnic origin
Discrimination based on denominational affiliation (religion) and/or worldview

The basis for the work of the BIKO team is the THM anti-discrimination guidelines (see announcement dated July 19, 2019 / AMB 55/2019). The presidium contact persons are officially commissioned by the presidium and act within the framework of a presidium resolution.
