Solidarity with Ukraine

The claim to assume social responsibility and to engage in this in cooperation with actors within and outside the academic system is part of the mission statement of Bergische Universität Wuppertal. With the network project In Touch Wuppertal, which was initiated in 2015 to integrate refugees in their studies and careers, the university is making a contribution to overcoming social challenges resulting from war, persecution and violence: More and more people are leaving their home countries and seeking refuge in Wuppertal and the Bergisches Land region. Quite a few of them have worked as academics, have already studied or were planning to study. The University of Wuppertal has had very fruitful relations with Ukrainian academics and their universities for a long time. The developments in Ukraine are shocking and our thoughts go out to the people affected, who have just become victims of an aggression that cannot be justified by anything.
