Since the meetings are open to all members of the university, interested parties can request access to the virtual meeting room via the email address of the Women's Office (frauenbuero.frauenbeauftrage(at)uni-bamberg.de).


Student Representatives

The female student representatives act as contact persons for female students who are affected by discrimination or sexual harassment or who have questions about the work of the Women's Representatives and the Women's Office. They represent the female students of the University of Bamberg and their concerns on the Women's Affairs Advisory Board, and they report to the Women's Representatives on incidents that affect students. The student body elects two female student representatives for the Women's Affairs Advisory Board every two years; they do not necessarily have to be part of the Student Representation (Studierendenvertretung), but they should be interested in supporting women’s issues and the anti-discrimination work of the Women's Affairs Advisory Board.

You can contact the student representatives via the Women's Office.

These are the student representatives for the 2021/22 academic year:

  • Lisa Brüning
  • Dorothea Gran
  • Lilli Herbelßheimer (1. Substitute Representative)
  • Paula Müller (2. Substitute Representative)
  • Janina Müller (3. Substitute Representative)

Official Opinions of the Women's Affairs Advisory Board

Statement on Gender-Neutral Language Usage (2021)

The Women's Affairs Advisory Board of the University of Bamberg expressly welcomes and is committed to the use of gender-neutral language in all areas of life, study, and work at the University of Bamberg. Gender-neutral language usage is an essential step in efforts to achieve gender equality. The University-wide Women's Representatives have already drawn attention to research on this topic through resources such as the lecture series Sprache.Macht.Geschlecht and in a kUNIgunde blog post. In addition, the University-wide Women's Representatives provide recommendations for gender-neutral language usage. Furthermore, it must be made clear that gender-neutral language usage is not an evaluation criterion for examinations at the University of Bamberg.
