Checklist Gender and Diversity

At TU Graz we consider diversity in our teaching. Students with different talents, educational background, language skills and learning experiences come together in our classes. Our checklist “Gender and diversity in teaching” aims at the faculty staff and offers key questions to reflect on how diversity can enrich their teaching. It also provides contact information for special inquiries and an overview of information about diversity and teaching.
