Protection against discrimination and bullying

If you have experienced discrimination, bullying or harassment you can find confidential advice and support at HNN.

What is discrimination?

HHN University of Heilbronn takes a clear stance against discrimination on grounds of gender, ethnic or social origin, appearance, age, disability, sexual orientation, religion or belief. Violence, bullying and stalking are also prohibited. Discrimination might sometimes be hard to identify as such and is not always clear-cut. Please do not hesitate to contact us even in such situations as these. We can help you further.
