  • Support for founders
    Ruhr University has set up a “Worldfactory” to encourage and support entrepreneurial spirit and business start-ups among students. Enterprising ideas are developed in interdisciplinary teams with students of other disciplines, with constructive guidance and advice from experts and academics. Space, technical equipment and specific teaching formats are made available to the students. The faculty supports the activities of Worldfactory by incorporating seminars on entrepreneurship in the degree programmes.
  • Characteristics of assistance to differently abled persons
    RUB has set up an Advice Centre for Inclusion of the Disabled (BZI), which advises students and teaching staff on legally prescribed reasonable adjustments; it also suggests needs-based ways of creating conditions and structures that allow students with disabilities to study flexibly and at their own pace, so that the inclusion of students with health impairments can often take place without the use of separate reasonable adjustments.
  • Characteristics of diversity advancement
    A number of university lecturers in the Faculty of Social Sciences have a special interest in diversity (gender, migration, social inequality, internationalisation), which makes diversity a genuine part of faculty policy in teaching and research. In the area of equal opportunity, the faculty works with central and decentralised officers to draw up its regularly updated equal opportunity plan. Issues such as improving the situation of students with children (childcare provision) are formulated in this plan.
  • Other special features
    Following the motto of ‘Human – Cosmopolitan – Powerful’, the Ruhr University places the diversity of its members at the centre of its mission. The high proportion of students from non-academic families is a challenge that is considered by the faculty in its curriculum (small groups, structured support/supervision). Special emphasis is placed on student participation in the organisation of teaching at the Faculty of Social Sciences. Each semester a ‘Teaching Day’ is held together to discuss current challenges among equals.
