Support for refugees at the TH Wildau: Our Motivation

The increasing number of people fleeing war and destruction and coming here in search of refuge also presents new challenges for universities to tackle: In the long-term, structures and measures will need implementing to enable refugees to integrate into universities. Initiatives have already been launched by government ministries and other organisations (e.g. the HRK), as well as by universities, and the first proposals are being developed.

Alongside the urgently required structural and legal frameworks, humanitarian aid is needed across the country - and therefore also in our region - to help alleviate hardships, as is support for individuals throughout the integration process.

This is where the management of the Technical University of Applied Sciences Wildau comes in:

We see it as an urgent matter for us to take on a role of responsibility within society, which is set down in our university’s mission. We wish to make it clear that we truly believe in and practice the two pillars of “internationality” and “tolerance”, and want to make a clear statement that shows our ongoing commitment to treating each other with human dignity in all our interactions, characterised by altruism, tolerance and respect, regardless of skin colour, origin, religion, gender or language.

These fundamental beliefs motivate us, in the face of the current situation, to launch an initiative that brings together volunteers at the TH Wildau (both students and staff) to – as part of a larger regional network – establish specific and targeted offers of support for refugees, link up with others in the region and make this support available.
