OUR UNIqueness
…human

TU Dresden is my Uni because I am a fully accepted member of the community here. The University has always been a firm supporter in times of difficult personal change.

TU Dresden demonstrates queer acceptance – this is exemplary!

The University in Dresden has always been my professional home. I completed my apprenticeship at TUD as Andreas. I have always been proud to work here!

The path of my transition was a long and very difficult one in many respects. As an employer, however, TU Dresden was always there to help me and enabled me to have a smooth start into a “new” life. After I “came out” as Andrea, I never had to experience feelings of exclusion or discrimination in my working environment. However, a different official e-mail address can still very quickly become a cause for confusion. My colleagues, the Personnel Directorate and the Legal Office provided me with straightforward help. This meant I was able to overcome many obstacles very quickly. Conclusion: one letter less in the e-mail address made me a happy female member of staff at TU! I am grateful for that!

Since 2012, TU Dresden has had a central advisory and co-ordination office in the shape of its Staff Unit Diversity Management – for people with my background, but also for people with disabilities or chronic illnesses. The Student Council of TU Dresden provides advice on a variety of topics for students affected by these issues.
