The winners are selected

Diversity refers to our students and staff but also the diverse nature of our work, our procedures and ultimately our ideas and experience. For TU Berlin diversity means a conscious and resourceoriented approach to the multifarious nature of our university. Our objective is a respectful and appreciative approach to diversity, as well as ensuring equality of opportunity and freedom from discrimination in all aspects of life at TU Berlin.

In the context of the fotocontest #DiversityTUBerlin, we asked you: What does diversity at TU Berlin mean for you?

We received many creative submissions of TU Berlin students and employees. You can find some selected contributions, as well as the winning pictures, published on this website or on Instagram with #DiversityTUBerlin. The official award ceremony took place on the 21st of June 2018 at the annual summerparty of TU Berlin.
