As part of a federal and state-level program directed towards supporting female professors, the first Equal Opportunities Concept (EOC, Gleichstellungskonzept) for the University of Paderborn was released in 2008. In order to continue on our current, successful, path, the university is committed to continuing the equal opportunities strategy of the last few years. The university leadership has committed to continuing with the current EOC.
In 2009, the university received the “Gender Prize” (university press release, in German) from the state of North Rhine-Westphalia for the best EOC.
