- Deutsches Studentenwerk
The Studentenwerke and student services organisations in Europe have been pursuing their social mission with great care and are committed to provide for the social, economic, cultural and health concerns of students, so as to make a key contribution to equal opportunities in higher education for all students.
This social responsibility is facing an increasingly complex social reality which is characterized by more openness, diversity and tolerance, freedom, rapid development of knowledge and dynamic institutional and social change on the one hand. On the other hand, terrorist attacks, the rise of nationalist or populist movements, and increasing social marginalisation and discrimination pose new challenges for the Studentenwerke and the universities.
The colloquium looked at the social mission of the Studentenwerke and their European partners in a tension between openness and safety. The European tradition of open and democratic higher education institutions was discussed at the same time as safety on campus for all, in an effort to underline the interests of a democratic society in personal and social security for all, in diversity, tolerance, respect and freedom.
The following topics were on the conference programme:
The colloquium was aimed at all student affairs and services staff in the European Higher Education Area.
