The University of Applied Sciences Potsdam is...

...in the teaching mission statement on "Democracy and pluralism. Teachers and students treat each other with respect and openness in an inclusive and familiar atmosphere. [...] Respectful interaction and appreciation, even in the case of conflicting views, are seen at the FHP as a quality feature and a guarantee for open, cooperative and responsible cooperation. With all openness to discourse and acceptance of diversity of opinion, the FHP opposes exclusionary behaviour and offers protection and support to all those affected by exclusion." (Teaching mission statement, 2020) In the context of current social developments, we want to emphasise our understanding of diversity and variety as well as our stance on discrimination and anti-democratic movements in particular.
