Together for tomorrow: WiSo 2030

Society-driven

Society-driven

We are committed to a strong community and address current social challenges. Our self-image goes far beyond the mere imparting of knowledge - we attach particular importance to promoting social responsibility, commitment and critical thinking. To this end, we create meeting places that offer students, teachers and employees space for engagement and are actively committed to sustainability, diversity, democracy and health. In our interdisciplinary collaboration, we carry out practical projects and research work in cooperation with non-profit organizations, public institutions and companies in order to bring about positive changes in society. Our goal goes beyond training highly qualified graduates – we form active citizens who unite together for a better future and make a lasting contribution to the community.
