Field reports from students and employees from the University of Cologne


Information about the project

The project has developed as a measure from the action plan Inclusion of the University of Cologne and wants to offer a forum to students, teachers and employees with disabilities / health impairments and contribute to raising awareness!

The aim of the website is to sensitize students, employees and teachers of the University of Cologne, who have not yet been in contact with the topic, and to arouse interest in the individual life situations of their colleagues and fellow students.

We hope that many people will use this platform as a forum to report about themselves and their experiences in everyday life.

We are pleased to receive the reports of the authors, who describe their strengths, but also the challenges they face in their everyday work and studies at the UzK, and how they can all contribute to an even better cooperation! You too can take part!

We would like to thank the previous editors and look forward to receiving further reports!


If you have any questions about the project or your own experience, the working group will be happy to answer them. No matter who you contact, your contact will be treated confidentially!
