University Committees

The Inclusion & Diversity Committee (IDC) was established in 2015 in order to deepen Modul University Vienna's commitment to diversity management which includes all issues related to gender equality, special needs, religious freedom, etc. We aim to put our core university values into practice by fostering a working culture that is characterized by mutual respect and an appreciation for diversity. Our chief instrument in helping us to achieve our goal lies in our ability to raise awareness, facilitate dialogue, and advocate for change. As such, we exist as an advisory group with a close relationship to the University Senate and Works Council that enables us to shine a light on pressing issues related to diversity at MU. At this stage in our development, we do not have the capacity to enforce university policies or penalize offenders on behalf of injured parties. Instead, we choose to take an educational, remedial approach to implementing diversity management at MU that will allow our community to live and learn together in a safe and respectful space. As such, all members of the MU community are welcome to approach the IDC for professional and confidential (unless otherwise agreed upon) advice, suggestions, mediation between students, faculty, and/or staff, etc.

It is our pleasure to serve a community that values and celebrates diversity in its many forms. Please feel free to contact your IDC members at or contact us in person.

Please review the Affirmative Action Plan for more information on the role and responsibilities of the IDC and the Procedure for Students with Special Needs for more information on special needs claims at MU. To make a special needs request, please fill out the Special Needs Consideration Form (also available at the SSC) and submit it to
