Characteristics of diversity advancementPromotion of diversity was integrated already into KLU’s original concept and is continuously expanded. International professors account for a third of the faculty. All lecturers also have extensive international experience. The KLU also has an Equality and Diversity Office, with the participation of professors, students and non-academic staff. The committee meets once a month.
Other special featuresThe students of the KLU are not organised into classic departmental student organisations. They play an active role in academic self-administration and contribute to university life according to the Anglo-American model through groups and committees. The interests of the students are represented to teaching staff and administration through year group representatives. Thanks to regular feedback sessions with all students in each year, it is ensured that student concerns are made public and taken into account. The open and constructive interaction of all areas is particularly noteworthy.
